in the middle you have two T50 torx bolts.

remove the lower black trim and you will see them.

i did it. ^^^^^^^^ is right. so the bottom strip pulls out (just start on one side and squish it in till it comes out), lay down and undo the two torx t50 bolts completely. The side clips will come off with no force really. so it will slide off the back. the bumper is light and easy to line up later on......
