Icon5 Rear Bumper removal...

I have a Helm service manual but still cant figure out how to remove the rear bumper? If anyone has done this before and might have some techniques to make it happen...I cant get the "clips" on the side of the bumper to pop off? If anyone might have some helping hints please let me know.

Problem SOLVED!!!

there should be 2 10mm on the bumper that meets with the quarter. And if I remember correctly the clips are pop clips meaning you have to pop the center out of it first then you pull em out.

They are easy to break too so watch out

EDIT: If its not the pop clips then its the gay ass screw clips. You just have to unscrew them.

How about take a picture and post it in here and I will let you know

you can see where the clips are along the seam...you need to push the center down with a flathead screwdriver, there are two bolts in the wheel well as ^^^ mentioned

99PreludeSH...I took the 10mm bolts/screws out...then the manual says there are two "clips" on both sides of the bumper then it will slide right off and I just cant figure out how to pop them out...they are not the push in clips...like on the top of the bumper cover near the truck latch they are tension clips holding the bumper in place...nothing like my '99 Accord, I just don't know...I will take some pics asap
