Default NOOB sti light question!

I attempted to put in my sti rhd lights and i came across a problem! How am i supposed to go about getting those little black things off the grill/light?? It really doesnt seem possible and i figured if its not possible then it must the wrong way! So any help would be appreciated.

By the way i am greg (GBrockREX) signing on under my friends name!

You have to use a little flathead screwdriver or your fingernail to pry up the top part first then the whole thing comes out.

Yeah, they actually come out quite easily after you gently pry the top part up.

curse subaru for not telling me how to do this. for the longest time I thought it was like a screw.

finally in frustration i tried to pry it off, my screwdriver slipped, hit the top part, pried it off, and the entire thing came out. Landed in my engine somewhere.

But I was replacing the grill, and i didn't need 2 of the things anyway, so it worked out.

Those things can be kind of jumpy . Being as impatient as I am, I couldn't wait to put my new Grill Inserts in. Needless to say, the bottom clips of the grill inserts aren't easy to reach, especially when your fingers are numb due to the cold and it is dark outside. I too was a victim to my engine bay.

Little known fact...

Japanese engine bays are designed specifically to catch tools, screws, fingers, or anything else that happens to fall into them.

This is a safety feature! You wouldn't want them to fall all the way down to your shop floor where someone might slip on them.

I think we should all thank FHI for putting our safety ahead of any pesky tool retrieving conveniences.
