    take off the 6 or so push pins under the hood on top of grill. then either cut the ones that are upside down at the bottom of the grill or take off the bumper and take them off right.

    but you should search and find a write up on this.. there are alot of them. its a really easy mod though.

    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
