I removed tht bit of trim few months back to spray it. If you check out my pics you will be able to see it from a rear pic I have on my pics. I used a kitchen knife and very slowly pulled it off. A tip is to push the knife in from the underside of the trim as this is easier due to how the clips are located. Be carefull as tto not bend the plastic too much tho as you pull it away from the bumper :)

Best thing for removing trims is a set of Bojo tools.
I use one for radio fascias etc.
A full set has all you need for door panels and various trim pieces.

I was fed up of scoring things with screwdrivers.
They're very handy indeed.

Had a chance to get my mitts on a busted up rear bumper from work and had a good fiddle with it before it went in the skip.

I grabbed a few photos of the mounting brackets and clips so anyone contemplating removing their bumpers or bumper trims may have a better idea of what to look for.

Download and view the PDF at your leisure.

The mounting brackets are the same for a MK2.5 also.
