So, I bought the front impact (<--?) strip without the license plate holder. The one that's on there now looks like it just clips and slides on. But I was wondering if ayone knew exactly how to take it off. The plastic is very soft so it's hard to do without damaging it. Yes, I realize it's probably extremely simple and I'm going to be made fun of for not knowing how to do it. Oh, and sorry if this is a repost.
Ok, so first I removed the small strip to the immediate left of the license plate strip. Then, I started to pull off the strip. But now that I'm halfway there, there's a quarter-sized piece near the top of the part where you put the plate. It looks like it is screwed into the bumper. Any ideas of how to get it off? BTW, it's a flat piece, there's no way to stick a screwdriver in it and unscrew it.
i dont know if you figured this out yet. but that small black piece that you cant just screw off is the piece that holds you bumper molding to the actuall renforcement metal bumper. dont remove that unless you are taking the whole bumper off to replace it with an m3 one or somin :P
In case anyone is wondering, I ended up just yanking the whole thing off. I think I broke off a tiny piece on the very bottom and behind the license plate holder but I'm probably just going to trash the thing anyway so I don't care. See girls can fix cars, too, haha (albeit a very small job, but you gotta start somewhere!) :P Thanks for everyone's help!
