: I received the replacement strip for the front bumper to replace the front tag. How do I remove the old strip and tag? Do I just pry off? Do I need to remove tag first?

What you do is to basically "yank" out the old piece from the bumper. It sounds harsh, but there some plastic brackets that fit into the gaps which need to be pulled out. You may also in the proces pull out some of the rubber from the right and left pieces of the bumper piece around the front plate piece as well. Do not worry about it. After removing the front license plate holder just slide new piece inbetween the the right and left side and push it in. You will see that all it takes is your hands, and no tools.

If you have more questions, please e-mail me.

Good luck.
