Front or Rear??
Front-
Pull the fender lining
Pull the 4 nuts on the brackets just infront of the front tires (2 on each side)
Drill out the rivits on the top
Take out the little plastic push rivits underneath
Stick a screwdriver under the tabs under the headlights, turn the screwdriver and pull, repeat on the other side.
