Help removing fender grill? (SoCal)

I finally got my painted fender grill from the bodyshop and for the love of me I can't get the bloody OEM's off.
Anyone in SoCal can help me? I've read all the DIY's and i guess im too much of a sissy and just srsly cannot pull it off.

It took me a while to do it and it seemed like it was not even possible...but don't give up. It'll come out...eventually.

Something to look out for though when your pulling them out with brut force... The black piece at the end will come out with it and it and may fall into the fender... Took me about an hour or so to get it back out. Pain in the ass that was...2nd one took 2 minutes...

Good luck.

lol i got into a real serious operation with it, I taped up the edges and taped up a thin screw driver, poped out the edge closest to the door, got another screw driver and wedged it towards the middle, and it took time but i did it like 2 or 3 times..

i try to avoid messing with it

Yeah it's a bitch, I thought i'd fuck it up too, but I managed to get it. The side gills I fucked up though.

Give Long Tran a call or PM, he'll hook it up.

If you don't pull it right you will brake clips. I'd suggest check DIY thread or go to your closest shop. GL, .
