    Removing MK4 Front Bumper

    I'm having some trouble in removing the bumper from my MK4 Astra. I've located the Torx screws in the wheel arches but underneath the car there are like 3 plastic clips that I can't seem to remove. Any ideas on how to remove them and get the bumper off without damaging the clips?

    Gave that a go with normal pliers and they're a right sod to pull. I'll procure some needle nosed pliers and give it another go.

    I just used a pair of pliers to remove the ones on mine. Rest of the removal was ok exept one of the wheel arch screws that i had to drill out.
