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 parts.

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 ...
