You yank it out as hard as you can. No joke.

RedBeast,

There's 2 different ways to do this install. You can take the bumper off and push the taps out gently. However this is very time consuming! Since most grilles come with new tabs, it's very common just to use force to pull the grille out. Check out at 50 Seconds of this video (The rest of the video doesn't apply do you since it's a different grille): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP5KMaT4yMI

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

If I took off my 5.0 badges and did the C stripe people would think I had a boss. They already do quite a bit.

Are you going to sell your stock 13 gt grille? I'm up here in Canada and our GT's get stuck with the ugly V6 grille because of running light issues and transport Canada. Long story short I'm looking to get a different grille.

Curious, what is the running light issue? That is a travesty in my opinion, the grill has a lot to do with this car's looks

Running lights are such a stupid thing. I am sorry for anyone with a car with them.

Ya I was freaking upset when I went to my dealer to pick my car up and it had the wrong grille. Word is that for 2014 transport Canada is going to allow the grille mounted Fog lights again but for now it's a no go. No way I was waiting that long for my stang so I just bit the bullet on that one. And I totally agree it completely changes the look of our cars.

I'm in the same boat with my Canadian GT; i bought an original '13 GT grille including the fog lights and wiring harness from Starkey Industries. Maybe check them out as an option. I haven't installed it yet, and I'll have to figure out how to wire it up so that I can use the new grille mounted lights independently from the lower valence fog lights.

Did that come with a black grille surround? Cause I hate the chrome. What did you do for your lower grille as the honey comb pattern will be different?
