All I know is plastic stuff breaks so bloody easy.
There are too many designs of clips and pullers to say how without seeing. But, if theres a grabbable head thats damn hard to pull, reach for sidecutters. Wire pliers. And be gentle. Piece of wood as a fulcrum if needed to pull the pin far enough. FYI SOP is if theres clips on a bumper to be replaced: Order them even if they are twelve bucks apiece.

If you're struggling with them much, show a pic for further input. First grab is usually a pry type tool. Pliers-type tools are good if they get under the pin. Push clips is what we call em around here. Drive rivet is the official term and there are some where the pin unscrews with a Phillips head. The official (insurance pay) safe assumption regards bumper clips as single use. Sometimes thats the reality. You are fortunate that the impact bar unbolts. Do I get chicken dinner for guessing R&I time?

ML320s in my era were the six minute bumpers. More like four, really. I do remember being able to shuck an early 2000s Yukon front door for paint in seven minutes. See why collision repair is a soul killer?

Found a couple guys posted about 4 hours for the job.
3 hours to find the clips, 15 minutes to pop em and then install hitch and pop back on.

Yard is all staked out, plans drawn and all pertinent information needed has been submitted for a permit. 30X48...

My wife is concerned that if I fall over, if she can sell this place and get her money back. She doesn't think there will be many people interested in all these buildings... I told her she won't have to sell...there will be guys knocking on the door, asking if they can be her new husband...

The fun begins soon of taking the welded mess and trying to get it all into the correct shapes.

The GTP no longer leaves a lake of evap case water, making oil and PSF slurry on the garage floor which pools up on the cement in the exact spot my foot has to step when I get in or out. Has not had a hint of high engine temp since compressor delete, and yes of course, it seems to have a nice zing to it now. Blah blah fwdposbs, um... aha! Here. This was I think Sunday. Everybody be sure to get your rip-snorts in no matter how fast the world is moving. Even if you have to jam them in edgewise between your other doin's. Pick your spot and floor something until you grin. Its important!

He knows about the Z-28 that I bought from another guy up in his area, and he knows of the guy who bought the Cosworth Vega that I sold to a guy up there. Small world.
