    Nope...




    Should I use WD40 AND pliers? :p



    How do the clips come out? They don't look like they'd fit through the hole...

    Are you removing the rubber so you can paint the grill cleanly?

    Nope, I have a spare grill that I'm doing a satoshi with and it doesn't have the rubber. :eek:



    So I'm trying to take it off my old grill to put it on the new one. I already ripped a small piece trying to get it off. :eek:

    It kind of looks like the grey clips need to be squeezed with needle nose pliers and pushed into the center of the rubber gasket. Re attaching the gasket to the other grill might be kind of interesting though...

    Good luck. Shouldn't be to difficult after you figure out how to do one or two.
