    They just work on the pressure of the washer water, so stick your finger nails behind the washer covers, and pull them out of the bumper.

    I agree. They're quite stubborn, you need to be brave and give them a good pull. They come out about an inch and a half. I recommend using hot water - not detergents etc as they can clog it up.
