Hi there.

I regularly have to remove sections of trim on bumpers to perform repairs/repaint damage.

It should simply be held on by plastic lugs on the rear of the trim itself. Close analysis will show whether the centre section needs removal (I think its a 3-piece trim) before removing the side pieces.

A tip for you - use a large, flat-headed screwdriver to prise the trim away , from beneath, that way, any damage which may occur to the painted surface, will not be visible once the trim is reinstated.

Start at one end, and it should all be removed without too much effort.

Best of luck with the sensors.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
