Default I need some help from anybody that has installed a hitch

I installed Curt hitch and it took most of the day. I have lots of excuses, I'm old, did it on my back on garage floor by myself, etc.
Any way I cannot figure out the 2 big washer connectors near the tailpipe that hold fascia up. I think instructions stated that they unscrew. Didn't unscrew so I sort of ripped the fascia out from their clutches. So how do I get them out so I can put them back in?

RBC, if what is pictured is what you are referring to, they do unscrew. If however you pried them out, perhaps you also pried out the fitting they screw into? See if the fitting is still attached, then unscrew and pop the fitting back into place. I feel for you Bro. I'm old and installed mine by myself laying on my back in the driveway...

Plastic screws suck...they strip too easily. I've had to pull on the backing ( in your case the fascia) as I backed them out. If your fascia is already out, then you need a trim tool (or screwdriver ) to exert pressure as it is backed out. Good luck.
