i was near the dealership today so i decided to go get the little strip of plastic that replaces the front license plate one that came with my car. so i paid the overpriced sum of $17 for the black plastic strip and came home to put it on. well, i begin by taking out the small screw-type thing in the front, which i finally get out. but, for the life of me i cant get the plastic strip out, it seems like its held on by many plastic clips. my question is: has anyone done this, and if so can you give me some advice.

i would have no problem with using my hands, but when i tried to pull it off, the bumper started to bend a little, and i heard some creaking sounds that i probably shouldnt have been hearing. any other ideas?

hahaha i just replaced mine last friday. It was easy man, i just used a flathead to take a little piece out, and pulled everything out with my hands. I snapped the replacement piece on like legos. Easy task man, don't be scurred....oh and to the guy that put his license plate on his windshield....ahahahahaha thats so teenage ricer ahahahahahha. I threw mine in the trunk, if a cop pulls me over (god forbid) i'll just say the car came like this.

dont know if this helps but it actually is illegal to put your license plate just on the dash. The rule is the license must be framed on your front bumper. cops got me for no front plate, too much window tint, and clear turn signals.

clear corners are legal but you have to have bulbs in them that will blink amber...not white or any other color
