  2. If you place a flat screwdriver under the lip and apply pressure upward it will allow the plastic Phillips screw to come out easier.

  3. It is now time to remove the pony emblem, you will need a star wrench to remove this. You can also drill out the two bolts since this bracket will not be used with the new grill.

  4. You will place the new grill into place to ensure the holes line up. Start by installing the bolt and nut on one side, leave it lose so you can move the grill around to align the bolt hole on the other side. I used a 3/8 drill to enlarge one side. The bolts holes did not line up perfectly. I used the drill to ream out the plastic hole a little. See photo below where holes to mount grill are (I only had to ream one out a little).

  5. You will need two 10mm wrenches to tighten down the grill bolts. Place one wrench under the grill assembly and one to tighten down the bolt head (see photo below).
