I was recently searching to remove the chrome ring on my front bumper and could not really find much. I did end up finding a solution on the internet but I dont believe PL has a how to for this so thought I would write one. If this is a duplicate my bad and you can delete this thread.
I found this useful as since I previously plasti dipped the chrome ring there was a bunch of over spray deep behind the trim I was able to clean out nicely. Also removed all the plasti dip from the chrome and wrapped it instead.
Tools you will need:
10mm socket / wrench
Philips Screwdriver (one short and one long one)
Flat head screwdriver
First start by removing the two 10mm bolts on the TOP part of the BOTTOM grill
Muster up the courage to give the BOTTOM part of the BOTTOM grill a good push INWARD to release the clips holding it in place. You will feel where it is holding and be able to release all the clips feeling your way around the grill.
The black center part of our grill has two plastic clips that go inward toward where the two 10mm bolts were. You will need to gently wiggle each side loose by gently pulling back on the center bumper to release the bottom grill. You will now be able to take out the bottom grill
Once the BOTTOM grill is removed you will be able to access 8 screws located directly behind the chrome trim. Feel with your fingers you will be able to feel all of the screws.
Pop the hood to your car, and start releasing the 4 POP clips, and the 2 philips clips holding the Air duct to your Air Intake. Remove plastic tray completely.
Squeeze your hands behind where the chrome ring is to remove the 8 silver screws holding the bumper directly in place, and the 2 screws holding wires also connecting to your bumper. These 2 screws will be BLACK. (some of the screws are pretty difficult to get your hands into would recommend using the shortest philips screwdriver you have.
The screws holding the wires are located in the white plastic clip seen in the photo below.
Once you have successfully removed all the screws the chrome ring should pop off no problem. Pull gently all the way around if any clips are still engaged.
**** I hope this is helpful to anyone out there who needs it. Probably not the most in depth how to but if you are looking how to do it I think this will suffice. Enjoy. Questions and Feedback welcome.
