I am looking to remove the moldings from my front and rear bumper to paint them and clean them up a bit. Do i just use a flat head screwdriver and get them off, and then pop them back on when I am done.

I've done a search but cant find anything on this.

I'm looking to do this tonight after work, so any help can be appreciated.

ps.. can a mod put that huge DIY link that someone put together up at the top of the e36 forum. I think it would be easier to have that thing there all the time.

thanks.

they're clipped in. Use a small pry bar and a clean rag or towel. See the link below, if you look at the diagram (rear bumper shown) you can see the trim and the clips it has. The front ones are the same. Just be easy on the pulling. I used warm water to loosen things up. Don't try this in cold weather.
