I was trying to remove my front grille to meddle with it to see if i can customise the stock grille, but i failed. I took all the pins on the top off, but i can't remove what seemed like pins at the bottom of the grille connected to the front bumper..

any help?

There is 4 clip and 4 screw holding the grill

You already found the four clip on top, the screw are a PITA to get

Dealer install sheet say that the front bumper have to be removed, its pretty easing but i thought it will be long so i just removed the oil pan plastic cover and reached the screw by squeezing my arm between the bumper and the rad

It was easy that way cause i had the car on a lift... i guess if you have to crawl underneath you better just removed the bumper...

i will try to scan the install sheet of my grille and post it here

I just stuck my arm between the bumper and the grille. I also had a small snowboard tool handy so removal of the screws was simple enough. Hardest part was putting the screws back in... which I never did. Has held strong for a few hundred miles so far.
