So one of the odd things on my Fiero is that both of the reflectors in the bumper, as well as the GT badge, are melted. While that's weird, and I'd like to make sure it doesn't happen again (the heat shields are in place over the exhaust tips and look like new, paint on the bumper appears original due to presence of the VIN sticker behind the license plate, so I don't think it was a fire or anything else that affected the whole rear of the car), I'd REALLY like to replace them because they're definitely the worst thing about the exterior at this point. Do I need to pull off the rear bumper cover in order to do both jobs? I didn't see a great description of how to replace either in the service manual, but is it pretty clear what to do with the bumper cover off? I've got replacement pieces from TFS, and I'm hoping I don't need any other clips, pins etc...

I would pull it off. I believe all the plastic push pins are reusable.

You will need to take out the taillights, rear makers, screws in the wheel wells and push fastners on the bottom. Also, unhook the license plate light.
