    Removing the lower grille

    Does anyone know how to remove the lower grille from an '08? There are several tabs and none of them seem to want to let go without a lot of prying. I just don't want to damage the bumper cover (of course).

    Thanks for any links/help/suggestions as always!

    I just did mine two weekends ago. Pulled the front bumper cover off to do it. My original intent was to do it with the cover on but after pulling it I don't see how that would have been possible. The cover comes off surprisingly easy in less than 30min. The lower grille is an "MFer" to remove. I used about 6 flat bladed screwdrivers to keep pressure on the grille once I released the clips, otherwise it just wants to fall back in place. Shelby apparently had some kind of tool made up to do this when they built the KR's but I was never able to find a picture of it and I would have imagined it required two people to do.

    I'm trying to install the Shelby Brake Duct bezels... Being that Shelby stuff never comes with directions, I cut the 2.25" holes through the grille, just to find out that the grille has to be removed to "trim the hole" to 2.5". I tried doing it while still attached but that is near impossible to do as well. Would have been nice to know before I started the process though.
