Bumper very dirty but you should be able to see those nuts that twist right off.You are going to have to take the bumper off to get to them though.There is a total of 11 of those bad boys.

That pic is the bottom of the bumper where that strip your talking about.That is the only way to take that piece off since there are 11 of the types of nuts holding it on.

You will need to pry that out and also take out a small screw that is tough to see in the "scratch guard cover" to get the rear bumper off. If it is warping now it is going to be very difficult to get in there succesfully when you remount the bumper. I just threw it away and put some thick grip tape over the spot to cover up the holes.
