    Ok so I have been trying to remove my front grille emblem to paint it and I have no idea how the heck to take it off the grille. Im scared to break the emblem if I pull on it. Is there an easy way to get it off? thanks

    You have to take the grill fully out and there is two or three screws holding the emblem in on the back.

    ^ this


    start with the two screw on each corner marker
    then there will be one on each corner marker at the top (under the hood) connecting them to the grill
    then there will be approximately 11 clips holding your grill in
    I broke a majority of them getting my grill off.

    good luck

    Dont need to take the whole grille out to get the emblem unscrewed. It can be done with the grille on

    Someone on here makes them, but they are a lil pricey. I bought mine off another member for $20 if I remember correctly....mine went missing and was having a tough time finding a cheap replacement. Overall I like it, fits pretty good and have gotten a lot of compliments.
