I've just noticed the front bumper side upper garnish (the silver trim in the photo) is not fully clipped to the bumper (red in the photo). It's a 2022 Eclipse Cross XLS PHEV.

Does anybody know if I could easily remove the garnish/get it to clip in properly without damaging anything?

I've found this service manual looking around on the forum: http://mmc-manuals.ru/manuals/eclipse_cross/online/Service_Manual/M1/index/index.html

The manual describes the order in which parts should be removed, but I can't find any detail about how to actually remove the part (e.g. any screws, or instructions on unclipping without breaking something?).

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Seems like there is a screw (part#11) on the upper trim (part#10).

Thanks, yes this explains why I couldn't move it at all. You saved me from breaking anything!

I still wasn't able to lift the trim off enough for the clips to reseat, so I ended up taking it to a body shop.

They sorted it in 20 minutes, but basically took the bumper off to do it. So further confirmation I wasn't going to manage it on the side of the road.

Thanks for the help.
