i had those issues the other day....i just took a small flat head screw driver and pulled the middle of the head out as i turned the screw and it came right out....those things are a little pain in the ass....also when your turning the screw inside of it make sure that the whole thing isnt turning....sometimes you need to put a finger on the outside part to make sure the it isnt turning....otherwise your going to be turning and turning and turning.....and guess what still turning...hahaha

Those plastic screws are a pain. Try sticking the tip of a sharp utility knife in between the screw and the base and gently pry upwards while you are turning. If that doesn't work then pry them out. I've had to force a couple out breaking them in the process. Fortunately they are available at any auto parts store.

Both those last two replies were pretty much correct. The screws get mud and stuff caked on them and then become difficult to pry out.

I broke 2 taking my bumper off and just bought them at the local Mazda dealership; $1.84 each but worth it.

I just did the McCulluch+harness install last night- no broken or left over parts. The hardest part for me was finding the last 2 screws behind the fender liner. Since I'm on dial up the bumper removal download takes an hour, so while that was happening, I was able to figure it out. It also took me a little time to figure out that the corners of the bumper have to be pulled outward from the fender to release. The next time around will be much easier when I do my foglight install.
I bought my kit off of ebay w/harness for 275+20sh. Unfortunately it came with no instructions. The wiring harness pictures and diagrams that is was able to locate were a bit lacking IMO, but it all worked out.
