    easiest way it to just pop the grill off there is two screws and two clips right on top. Then the emblem just has two tabs on the back squeeve em and it comes right off. Just screw the new one on and your all done takes maybe five minutes.

    This.

    There are little ridges at the edge of the grill that the emblem sits in (so the emblems recessed a lil bit.) You could probably just sand them down to make the thing fit.


    And afaik, there are no screws holding in the emblem. Just 3 clips is all I remember whenever I took the emblem out...and of course I broke one of them so now I'm running a ghost emblem!

    1st gens have 3 shitty plastic clips holding it in...

    those devil horns probably wont fit without some modification to the grille as previously stated

    It's a good thing theres an emblem behind the emblem, cause I'm not paying $30 for a sparkly piece of plastic!

    oh, to take the grille out theres 2 screws and like 7 clips.

    to take the emblem off is only 3 clips.
