Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007 Discussion, Removing stock grill and emblem?? in Cadillac CTS Coupe, Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon Forums; How the hell do you remove the stock grill on an 05 as well as take off the emblem and ...
You don't have to cut anything, just remove the plastic push pin around the grill using a flat head screw driver. The one on the side are a pain to remove and even more to re-install.
After you removed the grill and to remove the emblem, use a heater (hairdryer) to warm up the glue . Use dental floss to slowly separate the crest from the grill. Repeat this process until it is completely removed.
It's really an easy process, i did that it took me less than an hour, and i've never touched a car before
