Need some quick grille help

I'm trying to get my OEM front grille off and I can't get the damn thing unhooked. The bottom has 4 directional snaps that are holding it in. Anyone thats taken this off...is there an easy way to get those clamps compressed so I can pull it off? it's too close to the radiator to get some pliers back there....

2005 CC FX4...compounds and everything else that goes with em.

Re: Need some quick grille help

I used a long flathead from the front to pry them up, just obviously take your time to avoid hurting anything but they can be a pain.

Re: Need some quick grille help

so you just pry the clip all the way up instead of compressing it?

Re: Need some quick grille help

got that bastard....thanks guys

for those who have swapped front ends...did you keep all the mounting hardware (top 4 screws and clips) or did your new grilles come with new hardware? just trying to figure out what I need to ship with this one because i'm not sure if my new one comes with that stuff...
