We did 3 sets last week. 2 getting painted and a 09 getting chrome new style. You remove the inner fender liner to get behind them.

Drum where you get them? I need a set for a project, I guess the old ones would even work. You have those laying around?

use dental floss to cut through the tape that holds them on, then break the tabs off from the inside between the engine and the fender.

after i figured out that it was 5 times as hard to remove them without breaking the tabs, it took about 10 minutes.

dental floss works, just be careful. It is possible to dig into the paint a little. Don't ask me how I know.

actually, I did it with fishing line. maybe dental floss is softer. I have done alot of debadging, and usually never have problems. But there is always that one time...

I may be in the minority, but I like the 2009/2010 side vents better.
