Too cold out in the garage to look. But if the pins look like a nail head, just pry the (nail head) up and the whole plastic fastener will then pull out.

Clips pull up very easy.

Those black plastic clips with the slot through them are easy to get off? I cannot remove them without breaking them or damaging bumper. I gave up. Tips are appreciated.
