(Optional) If you have a new grille without a pony cutout, you may not want to remove your factory pony or pain it a flat black to prevent it from showing through your new billet grille. Note that this is not necessary for installation.

To do this, remove your factory grille. Begin by releasing the 2 screws on top. Remove the factory honeycomb by releasing the clips holding it in place. Finally, to remove the pony from the grille, use a flathead to pry loose the retaining clips at the back of the pony emblem.

Finally, to remove the pony from the grille, use a flathead to pry loose the retaining clips at the back of the pony emblem. If they don't release easily, you may also use a pair of pliers to twist off the retainer clips on the back of the pony emblem(the should break off by twisting and pulling at the same time.) Once the pony is removed, reinstall the black factory honeycomb.
