    What holds the black insert in the rear bumper on?

    How easy is it to remove the black insert in the rear bumper? is it a bumper off job?

    Just covered my door blades in carbon fibre and want to try the same with rear insert.

    Any help,pics or advice appreciated.

    It's just clipped in.
    If you stick your head under the bumper you will see the clips.
    They need a squeeze and push through.

    You will see what I mean when you look at it.

    Post some pics of the blades & rear bumper insert once it's done. I was considering doing the same but am undecided.

    Would the bumper inserts be the same for the bottom front lip grill? As I'm thinking of doing the inserts black as they have faded quiet a bit
