    are you talking about the 4 bolts that attach it to the bumper? they rachet off with a 7mm wrench I believe.

    Why do you have to reuse them? didnt the delete kit you buy come with them new?

    Just take the 7mm wrench and gently pull the bumper up ever so slightly so you can get to them. It was a bitch but you have to be patient and take your time. Otherwise your gonna **** it all up.

    no not the bolts, they are plastic screws that are in the center of a hollow rivet

    Is that the little ****ing screws ontop of the grill delete or the push pin things that look like screws but they are made of plastic? If its the little screws on top I had to take a flathead screwdriver and pry the plastic ring around it up just a little bit to keep tention on it so I could unscrew the screws. If I didn't all the would do is spin inside the plastic ring thing.

    Just take a flathead and pry the whole thing up just a little, leave the flathead in place and try to unscrew the screw from there. Be careful though I got impatient doing that and slipped with the screwdriver and scratched my paint :( Try not to apply alot of preasure when you are unscrewing the screws cause it will just push them back down in the black rivet thing.

    thanks guys, I got it finished, although I didnt have the grommets for the four screws. I will probably just go get some 3M double sided tape.

    The way you have to remove those weird plastic screws is by unscrewing them very gently. Dont apply any pressure on the screw, just turn the strewdriver without pushing down.
