I plan on having my buddy paint my front bumper reflectors body color tomorrow, do they just pop out? Any suggestions on how to safely do this will be appreciated. Thanks!

take a flathead screw driver, put a t-shirt over it, jam it between the reflector and the bumper in 3 places across the top and hold it with your finger (so that it wouldn't pop back into the place) it pops right out... When I did this i chipped one of mine, but I was replacing them, so it didn't matter. best of luck

it kind of hurts, but if you use both hands and press down on the top edge of the reflectors you can pop them out w/o possibly chipping them by using a screw driver...but if you're going to just trash them anyways, might was well just use a screw driver
