You may find it easier to trim a fraction of an inch off the bike rack (as I did with mine) rather than trying to remove that back plate. Also, the back plate prevents you from running something too far into the receiver and hitting the bumper cover.
Yea, I am having that debate now about which to modify. Sucks that I either need to cut a brand new bike rack or a brand new hitch.
