    How do I remove the bumper grille on my 2009 PreRunner Doublecab TRD sport?

    I want to re-paint this grille and need to get it out. Thanks...

    Take the couple screws and clips holding the grille down out. Then gentle pull up.

    Now if you want the bumper off then you will find some more clips on the top holding the bumper. In the fenders there's a screw and clip as well. Then some gentle but forceful tugging. Beneath the headlight area it felt really snug but eventually it popped out.

    That's what I recall from memory but I'm sure someone has better details on here.

    Goodluck
