My video was crap. Going to try making another one when it's nice outside.
Sorry reviving this thread. When you installed your lip did it just slide in. Like the tabs on the lip go in the holes on the bumper?

Yes, but the ends don't seem to perfectly line up. I've been meaning to take it off again and try again but I don't think it's going to make any difference.

Where are you having spacing issues. Do you have pictures?

Looks like if I can get something in there and press down on each tab I might be able to get it out without removing the bumper.
Did manage to remove the middle lip piece without taking off the bumper?

Yes, via brute force - ripped it out.
Did it damage anything? Would you advise doing the same to others? I need to replace the middle piece of the lip as well. Have some damage :(

Wont applying force damage the tabs?
