    Howdy-
    Thought I'd try here since the dealer has no advice........
    Could somebody fill me in on how to remove the plastic step plate on the center of the rear bumper. There are two clips on each side under the covers. Not sure how to remove them without breaking.
    The reason for removing is that I noticed some rust near the edge of the step plate and would like to inspect/clean under it. Too bad new bumpers start rusting on a 10 month old vehicle.
    Also, I'm sure the plastic door stops can be removed on the inside floor of the vehicle. Any advice with this as well?
    Thanks
