This is very easy to remove. Try not to "Flex" the bumper too much or you will end up causing minor flaws in the clear coat and it will later begin to chip off or peel up.

I do not bother removing the wheel arch liner. I gently flex it out enough to get my hand and wrench to the side capturing bolt. There are two bolts in this area, be sure to un-screw the correct bolt.

NOTE: This is how I remove my bumper. JTIS will do it a little differently.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool!!
