How do you remove the front license bracket?

I believe it's riveted on, so it's not an easy process.

When I bought my STS it had the front plate bracket installed. Here in NM we don't have a front plate, so I got the dealer to agree to remove it as part of the purchase agreement. They said they would need the car for a few days as they would have to fill the rivet holes and paint over the repair.

I never took them up on it though, as an incident required replacement of the entire front bumper cover. The new bumper cover came without the bracket.

Ok, maybe I'll just see if a dealer can remove it when I take in for service. Not all that worried about leaving the holes, just don't want the bracket!
