Are they clips or actual screws?

If they are screws, are they the 10mm ones?

its a screw that has a 10mm shape, but also a screw driver shape in it, so you can use either. and its not just those...the hole bumper is being a bitch. i keep trying to take more shit off, but its still stuck on the car

I think those can be found in the wheel well also. They are a bitch to get out. Just pop them out with a flat head screwdriver. They are just clips.

I never found out how to get them out other than that, cause when you twist the middle with a screwdriver, it doesn't do anything.

Just pry gently.

I remember those were a real bitch also. I just snapped them off. When I put on my TRD sideskirts, they only used half the amount of push pin clips underneath, so I just stuck a couple of those in the holes for the replacements when it came time to put it back on.

Taking the bumper off is kinda of a bitch. Be sure to remove all your rear plastics as there are a few screws in there also.

Dude, I know exactly what you're talking about.. I got so frustrated when I was putting on my kaminari rear.

This is what I did: pull out the plastic "screw" as far as you can and then use a hacksaw to take off the screw "head."

You'll have to get some new plastic screws from toyota if you plan on putting back the same bumper, but so what idunno

Hope that helps thumbsup
