I took the bumper off(4 bolts lazy) and it made it 100% easier. Then just get some pliers or vise grips and pinch the lil clips underneath the bumper and pull up on the plastic pad as each clip releases.

edit: On re-install, pinch the clips sideways to expand them so they snap back tight when you put it back on the bumper =]

Make sure your paint is extra dry, I'm talking at least a day of curing before you try to put it back on. It's kind of a PITA to get all the clips snapped back in.
