That strip that runs all of the way around the car covers bolts on the front
and rear bumpers that hold the bumper covers on. Use a small screw driver to
remove the short section of the cover onthe right hand side (exposes the
hole that the recovery loop screws into), then from there proceed to remove
the remaining sections. On my car, this strip is black, but on some cars it
can be color matched.
The fenderwell liner and some plastic duct work also attaches to the bumper
cover. The fender liner also has a few screws that hold it to the inside of
the fender. The liner costs in the area of $25, as does the various ducting
there are two screws one each side, one by the tow hook loop, in
the front of the bumper, that doesnt seem to attach the bumper cover..
i can move the bumper cover and see they arent attached to those
screws. are there other screws on the side ?
Yes, there are screws around on the sides. The fender liner screws need to
be removed as well.
I have worked on my car in the area where you are working, but I have not
actually removed the bumper cover. I saw several screws under the strip that
hides the hook loop, and I assumed these hold the cover on. I also assumed
you haven't taken the strip off ...
