    I just did mine. Remove bolts and gently pry. I'm not sure if it attaches the same on an sr5 but my Offroad had clips as a part of the flare and it was slotted in the bumper. I should have removed the fender liners and pushed them out from the front.
    @Nitori any other advise?

    Im going to revive this thread. Im going to be changing to OR flares anything I should know before I do it... Buy new clips in advance? New 3M tape to seal it? Any do's or dont's would be great. Or is it just a simple take out screws, pry off, and replace?

    Just broke a clip last week. You have to reach in under wheel well and pull that mud gaurd plastic open to reach hand up in it. Then push fender clips out from inside. Then i beleave there was one screw to remove. Take your time

    I did not, I didn't remove the fender flare all the way so I just put the clip back then screwed the fender flare back down.
