I ordered a sports grille about 2-3 months ago. Haven't had the chance to swap it out with the original because I haven't had the chance to figure out how to remove the bumper.

Can you direct me to the "right tool"?
Theres a DIY on the forum somewhere, but its not hard.

1st layer fasteners are black plastic snap bolts, use flathead to pop off the tops then pull (easy) about 6 or 8 both large and small

Take off those ^ then take off the black plastic protector thing off the back of the grille. Has a curved rubbery piece attached to it.

2nd layer is 2 hidden SS screws that are a pain to get to on the outsides of the grille. Need stubby phillips head screwdriver ("right tool"?). I just angled in a long screwdriver from the side but was a PITA (hard) 2 of these

last layer fasteners are plastic clips at the bottom of the bumper that you have to poke at until the grille comes off. (med) maybe 4-6 pairs of these. I broke a couple of em takin mine off, but they dont seem too neccessary anyway.
