the bumper end has to come off completely, there should be a series of phillips head screws holding the extensions in.

What I do to replace the extensions on these is to unbolt the impact absorbers from the frame. There are 4 bolts on the end of each tube and 1 bolt about 11" down on the bottom of the frame. Then you can pull the bumper and impact absorbers out of the frame tubes as a unit. You don't have to put the bumper on the ground. You may have to disconnect the taillights. The impact absorbers will support the bumper and taillights. Then you can replace the extensions.
