Hi Eric thanks. I managed to get as far as step 6.2. But how do I unclip the expansion rivets? I can't reach them from below the bumper...

I've tried to go from the inside wheel well (by removing the side panels from the trunk) and I can see the tips of the clips pointing up but no easy way to remove them...
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Is there any way you can take one or more pictures of the clips and locations so I can see myself if there is an easier way.My pictures show the clips but they are not the greatest pictures.Usually you can upload the pictures here using the paper clip icon.

Let me know,thanks Pete.

Hi I have a picture - but not sure how to attach it here. The "+ Add files" link doesn't work and I don't see a paper clip icon...

There we go - I managed to get it to work. This is from inside the left wheel well. You see the tips of the clips?
