Use at least 5 knifes to loosen the outermost 3 tabs and the 2 bottom tabs (indicated in green below). Verify you're knife is in the right spot to "unclip" each tab by looking under the car where the knifes will stick through. The knife needs to be carefully centered and go between the grill piece tab and the bumper cover tab to separate them. The bottom two tabs are easiest to see so get a feel for what I mean using those. Once you have those 5 knifes in, push the grill piece out on that side, remove the knifes and then seperate the remaining 3 tabs that are closest to the center (indicated in red below).

WOW! You are a ROCKSTAR. There are those who simply reply, then there's those who reply with details, illustrations and photos. You Sir deserve a merit badge....or brownie points...not really sure what this forum uses. Either way, I salute you!
