Does anybody know how to remove the plastic top piece on the front bumper??..I took off the grill and painted it, but now everything else looks like crap, lol....
I circled the piece I'm referring to in the picture....
Thanks for any help!

You have to take the bumper off for good access, but there are some squeeze clip type retainers on the back. You collapse them with some pliers and push until they go through. Do it one by one from one side to the other.
