Need to Replace Chrome Strip on Bumper

The day after I received redelivery of my ED, someone "tapped" my parked car from behind. The result is a paint chip about a quarter-inch long and very thin, but it goes down to the black plastic and the car is mineral white metallic. Some chrome is knocked off the (Luxury) decorative strip. Maybe it's no big deal but I want the car to be perfect for at least a couple of months. It seems the strip can be replaced without removing the bumper cover. Do I simply reach underneath and remove clips holding it on, or is it more involved than that? I haven't ordered a new strip yet. From reading the forum here, it seems like Dr. Colorchip is the way to go for the paint. I will post some before and after photos. Thanks for any advice.
