How Do I Remove this clip?
Was working on removing my rear bumper today but ran into some probs. It is this clip or fastener that i cant seem to get off. I did step 1-3 and i believe the clip i took is the push pin fasteners? How the hell do i get that off? I can twist it, i assume counter clockwise to loosen it. Does it come off?

On wkjeeps the instruction states:

1. Open the liftgate.
2. Remove the four push pin fasteners (3) and 2 screws (2) at the step pad area.
3. Remove the plastic rivets at the wheel wells (1).
4. Remove the two push pin fasteners and remove the rear wheel splash shields.
5. Remove the nuts (1) at the back sides of the
quarter panels (2).

does anyone know if i need to remove the rear wheels to get the rear bumper removed?

Thats not a fastner. Push the cover toward the front end and unhook the bumper from that clip. Did you remove the nut from that area?

not yet, i only removed the 4 fasteners and 2 screws at the liftgate area and the 3 rivets that holds the wheel wells.

I had trouble finding that dam nut at the backside of the quarter panel but im assuming that is visible after the splash shields are off?

now...its to the right of that fastner pictured. Lay on the ground....reach up at the very corner of the rear bumper(corner that meets with the rear 1/4 panel) and the nut is there. Thats one reason the bumper will not unclip from that fastner.

Re: How Do I Remove this clip?
is that rusty bolt what was under the fender liner???

cause you do have to remove the liner to get the bumper on and off......

i think you need to pull it out a but on the sides, the first pic looks disconnected like scott said......that flat thing kind of holds the corner on......

you got to peel it like an onion LOLOLOL

Re: How Do I Remove this clip?
that bolt is not it. I was thinking it was a nut....but maybe its a bolt? I cant remmeber. been so long. But there is a nut or bolt at each corner of the bumper. Its just to the right of that bolt yoy are showing in the pic. Its behind that bracket...right in the pointy part of the bumper. Its hard to explain

Rob, im not sure. the fender liner is the plastic around the wheel well or the plastic part between the bumper and that metal frame to the right? (pictured below)

Re: How Do I Remove this clip?
this is a pic i took of the SRT bumper.

the nut/bolt/screw i need to remove are from those holes on the bumper right? cause im sure the 2 screws/bolt/nut are what is in its place on my bumper right now.
