Removing Front Fascia? Tow Hook Install?

Has anyone removed their front fascia? I downloaded the PDF showing where all the fasteners are but it looks as though I need a special tool....?

The reason I want to remove is to install the Mopar tow hooks.

Thanks!

If it's anything like the WKs the plastic fasteners are cheap and easy to replace. No special tool really required, but some of the original fasteners will probably need to be replaced when you pry them out.

You shouldn't need a special tool but a pair of pliers might come in handy if one of them is being stubborn. Like Texas WJ said, though, they are plastic and can break. The ones that are on the very edges up under the wheel wells are the hardest to get to. For taking those off I had to push the air dam back towards the rear of the vehicle with my other hand. Also, once you get all of the fasteners off, be careful when removing the dam. The upper edge is fastened to the bumper fascia with plastic clips which could also break if you aren't careful.
