You can take a rubber mallet and hit it towards the front of the car. Be careful not the scratch the paint, but it comes right off. I had a rock fly up off the path on day and push it forward. To secure it, you push it in towards the back of the car.

How long does it take to remove and once it is removed how hard is it to put back on with no issues? Please advise because I want to paint mine. I will never understand why they are grey. I want to paint them black.

I don't mean to be quip, but just TRY, it comes right off, it's amazing it doesn't fall off on it's own. It snaps in the bottom and is just resting on a lip at the top, the ones in the wheel wells have some screws, don't be afraid of it, it kinda just yanks off, total time with screws, 10 min.

Mine was loose as well and I lifted out the bottom part and had seen the clips were broken off, I actually used a drop of marine sillicone 5200 in each hole and stuck it back, but I am sure any glue will work. It will still come off in the future.

that could be the problem, i hadn't really had time to look underneath yet, but i'm guessing the way my girlfriend likes to slam the door, that the hooks disintegrated :lol:

thanks for the input
