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).



Thank You from Serbia.

You can give reputation points. On the bottom of the post from 2012sel, lower right, is a square box center. Click on that and it will lead you to the rep link.

pmullins I travel to China quite a bit and my Chinese associates turned me on to "Alibaba.com". There sorta like the Chinese equivalent to google. Do a search there, the ones I ordered are very high quality for less than half the price here. I will take a picture and post.

tdotfocus12 Looked up the panels online - look pretty good- almost as if they were OEM. I noticed that most have the LED panel on the second last strip from the bottom, but I did see ones that have it on the last strip, I'm going to be looking for those. Post a link to the ones you have, pics would be nice too!

lforgue8 do you have a link to these new panels with LED's?

thanks

pmullins 2012sel, removed panels last night using your method (5 butter knives), worked great!!!
Now having difficult time installing new ones (w/led's). Can't seem to get all 3 sides to snap in properly but I'm sure I will, thanks again for the advice.

Thanks is always enough for me. I have an unfair advantage as I did this a couple weeks ago and replied with the info I wish I had at the time.

slybarman Plastic pry tool is simplest. I bought a cheap set off Amazon. Then just start by the top corner and work your way around.
