Front bumper grills

Can anyone tell me how to remove front bumper grills, without removing the entire bumper, and without breaking them ? That need a paint job.

It depends on the year of your car. changes were made over the course from 1997 to 2004.

It's almost impossible to reach, but the bumper is fairly easy to remove.

That front bumper cover comes off pretty easily. Just keep track of where the different bolts go.

Once you have it off it's also a good idea to clean out the radiators.

I agree with removing the bumper. Have done it twice now and it's easy. Plus, you get access to clean your radiators.
