Can't find anything in the manual =( But as far as I know the big center bumper molding can be removed without removing the bumper. Mine also had a crack in it and was swapped when a girl scratched my bumper on a side when she was parking. Didn't see the process but I know for sure the guy didn't remove bumper to replace moldings.
As for the upper lip over the license plate should be also easy to remove. You might want to remove plastic cover from the inside of trunk to expose the area to see if there are any hidden screws.

Hi just came on from doing just that under the cover there's 2 8mm nuts at each end bt can see no others. The middle is still tight but I do see two screw bolts on the outside will have a look again I think they might be the once holding the middle bit.

As for the centre bumper molding I thing that that just pops out but hopefully someone will have done it and they will let me know.

Jason can you also tell me where you got the manual from? Is like the HAYNES Manual?
