To tell you the truth u don't need to take off the radiator or anything else just that top cover and theres enough space for your arm to fit so you can take off the brackets u said theyre stuck on go one by one without breaking any (btw I got like 3 that are broken bc I didn't noticed it when I bought the car) it should be really easy.basically its the same thing your doing with the lid of the fuse box

I didn't take the radiator off. I see how that could be read that way though. What I meant was : I took the cover (the one that's on top of the grill and radiator) off.

That's the bracket. I'm just being very cautious of breaking those. Probably to cautious and all I need to do is stick a flathead in there and squeeze that thing out.

Re: Plasti-dip black out

NICE. Now that I know how to pull mine out, I'm going to order some white plasti-dip and do mine in a couple of weeks. I'll probably order a can of red and blue just to see what those color grills would look like too.

Have you ever heard of putting plasti dip onto the tail lights to make them look like the 2013 style? I really want those on my '06 but can't find anything close to them.
