First start off by removing the four plastic push screws from the top portion of the stock grille. After removing these four screws, you will see two more push pin screws on each side. (Do not break these as they will be reused). The easiest method is to use a flat head screw driver to gently pry them up from underneath.
Now you are going to remove the four bolts holding the factory grill in place. They are a little awkward to get to so we recommend pulling the stock grill forward enough so you can reach down and remove the 7MM bolts with a socket.
Take the top center section and install it using the two push pins at the lower section of the grille delete. Next, you will install the “U” shaped section. Reinstall it using the two push pins that were holding the stock grill on at the top. Make sure the four bottom posts are inserted into the bottom portion of the bumper. Remove the backing off of the 3M tape and push securely against the bumper to ensure a flush fit.
Finally, mount the running pony with the two new bolts using the phillips head screwdriver. You are now done with the installation.
