Really?
Were you pulling in the same direction the wheels roll? or at an angle?
If you pull at an angle, it applies torque to everything, if you pull perpendicular, then it's suppose to work fine.
At least it didn't happen this badly...

That video is hilarious... Can't stop chuckling to myself. Anyway... You have to remove the bumper cover, remove the two bolts, and the bumper shock should come right out. Haynes or Bentley manuals should cover this. It's a good investment to have a manual for your car. Some things are really easy to do yourself, and you avoid paying some certified schmuck to fix it for you. Good luck,
-Tim
