    I scraped something on my driver side passenger fender flair on the front bumper. The xtra piece thats connected on the front bumper by the fog light.

    I wanted to remove it and get it repainted. I was looking at it and didn't want to start pulling it in the result of breaking anything.

    It looks simple but I just wanted to double check and make sure.

    Anyone with some help? Thanks :)

    There are slide clips behind the bumper skin. Do not just yank it out. Get under there and just push the blue clips out with a slotted screwdriver or needle nose pliers. It's easy. That will release the little flare piece on the front bumper skin.

    no, you should be able to just crawl underneath with a flashlight to pop it off.
