I recently bought some tow hooks (thanks terrahawk!) and didn't think I would have much of a problem, until I found the hardware that Chrysler decided to use to hold some of the molding pieces... (they're all plastic 'screws'!!) I know there are plenty of you guys who have taken your bumpers off (seeing how everyone has an aftermarket bumper) so I was going too see if you could help me....

The plastic piece between the bumper and the body... and the piece under 'guard' are giving me real trouble. The plastic 'screws' won't come out. I'm not getting an aftermarket bumper for a while, so I'd like the keep the pieces in tact and useable... anyone have any input/ideas/help.

I used a long tip plier to hold the underside of that plastic screw, came out quick that way.

also the auto stores have replacement "body" panel screws that could replace the ones you damaged.
