    Anyone know how to remove the upper & lower grille??

    I plasti-dipped my upper / lower grill chrome trim today but I couldnt figure out how to remove the upper grille. I just taped off the grilles. Anyone know how to remove the upper grille and lower grilles!?? I need to swap my lower grille out, a piece broke off and I bought another grille to swap it out with.

    I tried searching but didnt find anything.....





    Gotta love plasti-dip though

    on the inside of the grill's there are pin's. Take out all those pin's and the grill should come off. Top grill first, then bottom. Just remember though with the bottom grill; dont try and take it out through the top. it's gotta come out of the hole on the bottom.

    I was able to get the top pressure clips off just fine and the top of the upper grille could pull away from the car but I couldnt figure out how to get the bottom of the upper grille out.

    Are there more pins? I saw some but they moved with the grille when I pulled the top so I didnt thing they were holding it in....plus they were at weird angles, how do you remove them without removing the bumper??

    you gotta find a way to get ur arm in there. The top grill comes out in one piece. Then the bottom comes out, out of the same hole it's connected to. Take a flashlight and look on the inside of the grill's and you'll see all the pin's you need to take out. Also; there are two different types of pins. That doesnt make a difference though. They still all come out
