I suppose you mean the bumper cover.  It's all one piece,  and it will

rails.  Then the entire assembly will slide backwards off it's mounting
clips.  If you now want to remove the plastic, there are about 20 tabs
that stick thorugh into the metal bumper, squish them with a pliers and

it start moving).  Pretty soon you will have the plastic cover off the

If yous is damaged I'd recommend just getting another whole bumper
assembly used, should be about $100, paint it and put it on.
