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....

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.

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

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...
