    Yeah, the bumper clips on under each head light. A flat head works good to pop it up and off.

    Don't feel bad. The first one I did on my car, I didn't know either. I was tugging and when it let go it popped so loud, I thought I destroyed my new headlights....

    k i took off the bumper cover and the headlight panel and found a nice little surprise...i knew when i bought my car that it had an accident on the front but didnt really know how bad it was. now after three years of owning it i pull the bumper cover and the bumper is squished and bent back on the right hand side....so now im wondering how to take the foam piece off...there are two rivets..that hold it on im debating on whether to drill them out....

    I dont think it will matter i didnt have the foam on my rear bumper on my 6. Now if you get in a wreak it will probibly hurt more and do more damage.

    Drill'em out. To reattach it (if you want to) judt duct tape it back on (seriously....wrap the foam around the bumper support) or big ass zipties. Its styrofoam...its light and it will never be seen again unless you take it off later.
