How to remove stainless cover on rear bumper?

Hello,
This is my 1st post on the forum. I"m looking forward to meeting everyone, and learning more about MB. I recently purchased a 1980 450SL. The stainless on the rear bumper is scratched, and I have hired someone to polish it. I didn't have a problem removing the bumper, or the rubber side pieces or the bumper guards, but cannot get the stainless cover off of the remaining bumper. I removed the 2 short fluted rubber pieces on each end by sliding them off, but don't have a clue on how to remove the large/longer piece is the middle as circled. I'm supposed to ship this piece off tomorrow, and would appreciate any help and/or suggestions.
Thanks, Breezie

Hello again, Since I didn't get any answers, maybe I posted this question in the wrong place; I'll try the vintage forum. Thanks again, Breezie
