I had car on ramps and easily removed lower metal clamps but I could not pull out the grey plastic insert. Any suggestions?
TIA

This is the fog light as seen from the inside. If I remember correctly, you have to remove the fog light from the inside and then you can depress the black plastic tabs (there are like ten of them) that hold in the gray duct cover (photo 2).

Damn, sounds like I have to remove bumper....But I have a new era intake coming and I guess I was going to remove the air duct to brake, so I guess I have to

The only time I worked on that area, I had the whole front end apart (due to an accident). But, I think it can be done from underneath without removing the bumper cover.

You just have to get to the back of the fog light to remove it. Once the Fog light comes out the back, then the gray plastic piece will come right out. If you need a photo of a specific area, let me know. I might just have what you need.

I forget every intricate detail, but when I had the fog light bezels out to have the 3M di-noc applied, the bumper cover stayed on. Take the plastic undertray off pop those metal clips and you don't need much else to get them out.
