Does anyone have experience with removing the bumper insert? I see that it is mostly held in place by small metal clips; however, I haven't figured out how to remove these clips?

i used a flat head screw driver. Just push the clip down and out. pretty easy IMO.

Thanks for that write up, but I wish it had more pictures of the process and the clips. Any way to save the clips from breaking them in the process? I wonder if BigJim had the same problem.

If the initial plastic clips are like the ones that are used up front on the splitters then I was able to reuse mine. This part looked straight forward, but I ran into trouble with the metal clips...they didn't want seem to want to budge!! I was also worried about breaking where the clips fasten to on the bumper...I will give it another try this weekend!!
