Sorry but i want to undersent.
You have to unscrew something or you only pull the trim and will be released from the bumper
You have more instructions?

It looks to me that #15 has a series of tabs that snap into a coinciding slot. Get under you car and look to see if you can access these tabs.

Yes those tabs are a lot of fun. Enjoy. Almost impossible to keep the bumper from getting scuffed removing that trim.

Can't praise it enough, heat gun does wonders for the locking tabs that keep trim like this attached to bumpers. Use a low setting and heat up the tab of the black plastic piece and the painted fascia together. Push on the black plastic tab from behind and wiggle it up/down and out.

Make sure you pop out the reflectors first as they hold the trim in place. I learned the hard way and cracked a reflector trying to pull off the trim.
