So, the rear garnishes can be installed without removing the rear bumper?
you will have to remove bumper for sure. Need to do a cut out for the new garnish to fit. People rumored that late 2019 had precut but it is not true.

Someone asked about the rears. I just did this mod a couple weeks ago, I initially tried the fk7 garnish close but no cigar. 😂 the rear bumper needs to be removed to access the mounting screws for the side garnish. Simple bumper removal

I ordered mine through Honda corporate in Torrance. My parts guy mentioned they were coming from Irving Texas. I’m sure you can source them from any respected dealership in your area.

See pic above for cut out reference. You’ll need to cut out behind the fake vents. These vents are actually functional and are vented behind the screen to relieve high pressure and clean up the side air curtain at higher speeds.
