    Default Tips on removing Sri rear bumper insert (to be used again)

    Had a search around the forum but all I seem to come across means breaking the inserts lugs/clips....

    I need to remove it so it can be used again....any tips peeps?

    Also is the vxr insert bonded on or does that clip on?

    Cheers.

    Plenty of patience and a few sore fingers later and you`ll have it out just don't force it..Vxr insert just uses the same clip holes as the sri ones. HTH Forgot to add probably better to remove the bumper..

    Remove it from the outside of the bumper using a thin flat blade screwdriver at the points it clips to the bumper, this method worked best for me, came off in one bit and took 10 minutes.
