  5. To start, locate the (4) retaining screws on the top of the factory grille along with the (2) retaining screws that retain the stock fascia. After you have located these screws remove them using the Phillips head screw driver, the flat head screw driver can assist in removing these if they are stubborn. Set the screws aside, you will re-use them later.

  7. The next step is to remove the (4) 7mm bolts that hold the honeycomb down at the bottom of the honeycomb. Be patient with this process as it can be frustrating. You can view and remove these bolts by tilting the factory grille forward.
