I suspected that you needed to take the bumper off to fit these. I emailed MX5 Parts to ask whether they can be fitted with the bumper in situ and got a response from Mark that all screws and bolts are accessible and these should be capable of being fitted without removing the bumper.
After ordering a pair of these I find that this is not the case. The bolt at each end feels like some sort of captive bolt and despite having small hands I can't get to the bolt end behind the bumper (even with the indicator and side light removed).
So - be warned, don't buy unless you are removing the bumper. Anybody fancy a set of unused trim plates......
