Default Re: Removing a honeycombe grille

if you take the whole grille out (shell with honeycomb still attached) and look at the back, the honeycomb is just clipped into the shell. Taking the shell with honeycomb still attached is easy, just remove the bolts you see when u pop the hood and then pull on the bottom of the grille out towards you. If you look between the shell and teh bumper under each headlight, you'll see the tabs that you're dealing with. pretty easy to do just be careful when you take the honeycomb off of the shell...they tend to be stubborn to come off

Good luck!

Thanks Mike!! I'm having a really hard time with the clips under the headlights, I'm afraid I might break the whole damn thing!

The clips under the headlights are not too bad. You can use a screwdriver to push down on them from the top, then they should slide right out.

i just pull the grille shell out even if it gives trouble. It won't snap the clip unless its winter time. The little metal part of the clip stays stuck in the header panel but u can just pop it off after with a screwdriver and slide it back onto the fiberglass piece for it on the grille shell.....its easier for me anyway lol

If that doesn't work, a baseball bat is always helpful LOL
