Plastic Bumper

Wife managed to tap a post with the rear bumper of her 1997 Dodge Intrepid. The plastic isnt torn and can probably be pushed back into some reasonable shape,( I have worked with the two part plastic repair epoxy on the FRONT bumper) but I would like to remove this bumper to work on it. Where do I start?

Make sure the bumper bar underneath isn't damaged. If it is, it's more than a cosmetic repair...
