    The splitter is more than likely going to be bonded to the bumper, so if you try and take it off you will probably damage it. So might be an idea to get a price for the bumber too.

    As for the side skirts IIRC they are either pop riveted on or Screwed on, if they are the Irmscher skirts that is.
    Hope that helps

    the splitter is attached with some big F''off staples - you'll need some decent long nose pliers to 'unpick' them, after which it just clips off.

    to reattach just use some self crapping screws.

    8-10 IIRC.

    I did one once and it's a bit of a scarp to do it - best if you get the bumper off and fight with it on the floor.
