Megane II rear bumper trim removal

Does anyone know how the grey coloured bumper trims on the Megane IIs are held in place, managed to get a finger or two under one side but it seems tight now, don't really want to pull like a lunatic incase I bust em!
Are they just plastic cliped into place or are they screwed somewhere.
I want to fit parking sensors to my CC, the fitting guide tells me they can be fitted with out removing the bumper, guide says once pilot hole has been drilled remove bumper trim and use the "bit" to drill the fitting hole, it also waffles on about I will be able to see the gromet to feed the sensor cables into the boot through the holes where the bumper trims where!
All Fine and well, simple, No problem, apart from HOW DO YOU GET THE FLIPPIN TRIM OFF, this small section of information has not been included.....brute force and ignorance usually does the trick but I generally find after taking this route nothing fits properly after in fact has a tendacy to fall off on a regular basis.
So just thought I would ask, see if anyone can point me down the correct route.
