Hope someone can tell you and me how. I want to take my grill out and blast it with my power washer and if it don't come clean I am going to spray paint it with some plastic adhesive paint. My truck is black and the grill is gray. I am thinking about painting it black.

use 2 flathead screw drivers, one on each side inch the clips while pulling at the same time. It's a pain but it will work

Yeah mine got a little chewed up too but it popped out. you could ebay the whole piece for around 50-60.00 in case you break the grill
