if you can get under the car you dont need to take off the rear bumper, you can get to the screws from the bottom. i got my jdm tails put in without removing the rear bumper in under an hour.

When I switched to JDM taillights, I couldn't remove the bumper. I could pull the sides off but where it hangs onto the taillight brackets, it wouldn't budge......seems like it it was gonna crack, so I just reached underneath the bumper and unscrewed the two screws for each taillight......a few scrapes here and there but it was well worth it.

For that reason, I installed my front and side A-Spec lip and had Acura do the rear.....mostly also because I didn't want to cut my bumper :noes:

yeah thats the same problem i had too, it was like the middle didnt want to snap off, because something was still screwed on i guess..

You can install them without taking off the bumper. I there are four screws located under the rear bumper. Its easy if you have a 10 inch magnetic philips, I took my 06 tails off to get rid of the water problem that theyre notorious for. Hope that helps, g/l.
