Get under it and look. There's the plastic snaps you need to pull out. Then you will see 4 bolts on each side attached to the bracket. But actually there is 2 bolts on each side that I believe pull the whole bracket off. When I took mine off I did the 4 bolts on each side, but I was told just take the 2 out on each side and it comes off. It's not hard, but time consuming.

So you replaced your lower valance with 1 that has the holes for fog lights? How much did it cost?

Damn. My front bumper is jacked... Top plastic panel is F-ed. The plastic brackets are broken off so it sits weird. Chrome bumper part was jacked, but was able to press it out some. Lower fog light valance has a crack, no biggie. But I have a 3 finger gap on each side. I want to just replace the whole thing, but I only see the chrome bumper piece for like $240. That's not the top plastic piece or valance...! My bracket might be bent, if I bend it back it might fit up better..
