Does anyone here know how to remove these clips? And can they be reused? Really appreciate any assistance here!
Not the bumper. Just the fender skirt as pictured in my initial post.You are trying to remove the front, or rear bumper? At the front when I removed mine, there is a green clip, that no matter what you are doing, you will break it. I think that is one one per side, though.
If I remember correctly, is the last/first one, toward the rear door.
Got ya. Thanks. These are very unique clips. Not the push pin type that are easily removed without breaking.When I have removed the rear bumper, I had to remove a few clips on the skirt as well. There I have broken that green clip. I have looked at it afterwards, and there is no way to remove it, without breaking that.
Thanks for the picture! Yes, looks like same green clips that came off when removed front left fender skirt. One was broken but 2 came off on skirt. It would be the three lower holes on the front left on the picture I posted.
Appreciate you sharing your experience with me! I called the body shop I left the skirt with for refinishing and paint to ask if they had the proper clips if needed. They said it’s Alfa specific clips so I drove over to my dealership and bought 3 green and 8 orange clips from them figuring that would cover any clips I couldn’t remove without breaking. Went to the body shop with them and asked if they had a tool to remove the ones stuck on the fender. He had one of the guys try to remove them for me. Not easy and after trying several of his trim tools and going behind the inner fender well liner was able to save a few of them. In the end of the 11 clips I bought at the dealership I used 6 of them. Reinstalled the fender skirt and it fit tight and looks like new.you can get a long skinny needle nose in the wheel well behind the felt and try to squeeze the clips, I found it mangled it still a little bit. I would really say just pull off the flare and put on new clips, that's what I did. I have a write up on the trailer hitch that has all the info. about half the clips broke, the larger green ones dont break as much.
