The black (gray) inserts are held in with screws from the backside. The top piece is three pieces. The center just pops out. The two sides have on screw each. The bottom piece is one piece, held on by three screws. The part painted gloss black that is left after the inserts are removed is part of the bumper and must be cut out. If you cut it out, you'll need to find a way to support the lower bar as it may sag.

You completely lost me. I will have to take a look at my spare bumper but I could have sworn it was a 1 piece unit. If I knew it could be unbolted that would have saved me alot of time cutting it out
