On my 2014, I had to use a very small flat head and press down on the clip and pull, ended up scratching my paint, on the other side I just pulled as hard as I could and it came out, the clip bent though. Went back on fine. But they need a lot of pull to get off, even with a flat head. Sad to see the new models have the same goofy clips.Well I am attempting to do this, but I've got two stubborn clips that attach the bumper cover to the fender that I can't seem to get out. Any ideas? Has anyone else taken the bumper cover off a 16-17 Cruze?
