anyone know the easiest way to remove the reflectors on the rear bumper? I’m assuming they pry off but didn’t want to pull on the wrong side and break anything. Or is there a way to get at them from behind the bumper?

Not sure why you want to remove them but I believe rear reflectors are required by law.
Hard to tell from illustration but looks like they just snap in. I don't recall this coming up here before.

They’re pretty easy to remove. There’s two clip like things on the back of the reflectors. A screw driver got them out for me. I took my reflectors apart and turned them into lights that work like the park/brake lights

Something stupid to do, too much time on your hands? They are there for SAFTEY, have you heard of it???

Calm down, Francis. Bet you’re a blast at parties.

Thanks, my son managed to break one reflector glass so I plan to try and replace without hitting the dealership
