start prying on one side with other hand lift the bottom tabs/clips up when there all free bottom will lift up then you can pull the top out you may have to cut or loosen the glue

Juicedz That sounds like a pita. Is it easier to get the whole upper grill out? Thinking I might just tape off and plasti dip if its that much hassle. Cars got 300 miles on it so I don't really want to start breaking stuff just yet.

Disassembly for grill

I just bought a new 2013 focus hatchback se and want to get the upper grill off to plasti dip the chrome on the sides of the ford emblem. Theres several tabs inside of the plastic piece. I was able to take off both snap in pins on the top two corners. Sorry I don't have a Haynes manual. Do they sell them for this model year yet?
