What model year is your car? The bumpers changed from MY 86 on ...

A pic would help :-)

Cheers

No problem, if I can do it anyone can :-) I took some MkIII bumpers apart last summer:

... and got them back together again without any trouble. A flat-bladed screwdriver helps getting the lugs of the black plastic strip to "unclick", but it's easiest if you take the metal bumper bar off first.
