    from the diagram it appears that it is held on with 3m tape and a couple of pop-off clips. try to apply a little pressure with a nylon trim tool and see how much resistance you get.

    I have a 2011 coupe and its a matter of compressing 2 V-shaped clips. There is no removal of metal clips holding it in, just a matter of finding a way to squeeze both sides of the clip while prying outward. I cant get my sausage fingers in there far enough, so i'm just considering pulling the fender lol
