Looking to paint from splitter/diffuser, plastidip doesn't cut it for me. I noticed there was something holding it in, is it removable?

What about the Diffuser

It is removable. Just some clips and it pops off.

For the diffuser I am assuming I'll have to take off my bumper, anyone have any idea how to do so
4 screws also, you can do it with the bumper still on the car, just remove the belly pan. 7 screws and around 10 clips and it pops out.

Mine is a 18 and the front is open above the middle with 4/5 vertical pieces
Is this all on like 2 to 3 pieces?
Yeah took out all the black below the blue fascia also broke off a piece of the under engine cover which I am replacing also

Probably need #25 too (lower grille). If it broke the tabs on the bumper though you'll need a whole new bumper cover.

After looking at again all the tabs on the bumper look like they are there
Should be fine with the lower grille and splitter. Might need some attachment hardware.

Well finally got to taking the lower grill and lower deflector off haven’t got parts yet but can’t stand looking at it busted
Found that the lower strip of the bumper cover is broke on one end, ouch and the lower shield is missing the front two holes from the damn raccoons and that is what holds up the middle of the deflector well anyway I’m gonna fix the broken bumper cover and replace the rest minus the lower deflector it is fine
Gonna try and repair the strip on the bottom and the strip and put deflector back on to support the lower bumper cover strip(shitty design by the way) and attach to repaired lower shield till the parts come in will post a pic

Well update and pic
Got the new lower grille on and old lower deflector on repaired broke strip of bumper cover that’s hidden underneath the lower deflector just waiting on the lower shield ( under engine cover) to complete the repair cause it has broken off the 2 holes/tabs that tie the middle of the strip together
