the pad thats all the way around the bumper in the middle? or the lower valance?


the lower valance is bolts i think 8mm

the middle pad is held in with pressure clipping. take the bumper off and squeeze the "nipples" on the back side with pliers and and pull off

Shouldn't have to drop the bumper to get it off. Just don't break the tabs.
