Mine doesn't have these screws. I have the "Action Package". So how do I take it off now?

I don't have those screws, they are not standard.
There are four bolts on the inside just under the ledge when you open the trunk, then there are 2 or 3 on each side, get behind the plastics..

all you do is pull hard. Just tie some rope to it somehow and then tie rope to tree and drive your car foward. It will come off easily with not effort.

that guide is if you have a body kit - and its just a generalized tutorial for how most aftermarket Fiberglass kits are usually installed... some kits may be installed different though

TRD kit is just an add-on lip to your stock parts... removal of stock parts is slightly different happywink

Shatoshi has it nailed. Get a plate for each side or something to keep the screws all organized. I removed my bumper to install my TRD rear valence. There are marks on the inside to drill the holes for the valence. While I wasn't crazy about drilling my bumper I figured, I won't be getting rid of my kit for a looooong time. And if I'm going to do it, I might as well do it right. One thing to watch for when you screw the valence on, it's kinda hard to get it the perfect "tightness" for the screws. I think I did mine a little tight and the "shelf" part that sits right under the black piece on the stock bumper is sitting a bit off the "shelf" instead of resting on it. So watch for that.

Good luck!
