    2011 tacoma prerunner - I am going to get rid of my chrome bumper and get it color matched. I need to know how to take the fasterners out (under the little plastic square covers) that hold the plastic bumper cover that is right under the lic. plate.

    I tried prying them with a small screw driver and pulling them out with a pliers - no luck.

    help

    Thanks
