How to I remove the plastic bumper cover on rear bumper??

Postby robytar [OP] » Sep 19 2011, 12:20am

Hello, I am trying to remove the black plastic bumper cover on my 2002 chevy so I can install a hitch. This cover that I am talking about is in the center on the rear bumper where the trailer ball would go. I looked underneath and it looks like there are two plastic tabs that push out but they will not budge. I'm scared I am going to break something if I exert too much force.

Thanks!

Try and slide something under the plastic and help pop it up.
