Front Bumper removal - advice needed
 
I'm installing the Altitude Front Grill and Rear Brow today, but I'm already stuck on step 1 - removing the front bumper. From searching the forum, it seems to be as easy as popping out the two plastic rivets in each wheel well and then yanking the bumper. However, getting those plastic rivets off is a pain, and I want to make sure I'm not missing a step.

The one that I was able to remove is stretched and twisted - no way that it's getting used again. Is there a more elegant solution than pulling on it with a plier?

Thanks, and I'll post pics once the new grill is on. :thumbsup:

those are NOT reusable. Just cut them off. You will need new plastic rivets and a plastic rivet setter. There are also two bolts to remove
