WK2 SRT8 How to remove chrome rings/grille

Time: 5-10 minutes
Tools: Flat head screwdriver
Difficulty: Easy

1) Use a flat head screwdriver to pry lower corner of grille away from vehicle. If worried about scratching plastic, cover screwdriver with a piece of cloth or a paper towel.

2) Using your hands only, gently pull and wiggle the entire grille off the vehicle. It is held in place by plastic tabs.

3) Flip the grille over and you will see that each ring is held to the grille by six plastic tabs. Using the flat head screwdriver, release the tabs from the rings.

4) Each ring is labeled with a number at the bottom so you know where they go when you place them back on.

Now you can paint, plasti-dip, or vinyl wrap to your liking.

It literally does just pop off. I used painters tape and trim.removal tools....but it takes 3 minutes just like posted. The Chrome rings pop off the back just as easy and are numbered for reinstall.uploadfromtaptalk1350849215158.jpg

Re: WK2 SRT8 How to remove chrome rings/grille

What did you guys use? Plasti-dip or spray paint? and how is it holding up since its covering that chrome? Or did you sand each grille piece down first?

Re: WK2 SRT8 How to remove chrome rings/grille

Very nice, I want to get all the chrome gone off of mine. Not sure how I am going to do the chrome surround on the windows though since its aluminum or steel and not plastic.

Did you do the lower air vents as well or did they come black on the 2013?

Re: WK2 SRT8 How to remove chrome rings/grille

Love the red color, wish I had waited a bit longer and gotten it instead of the black, then again I liked all the colors lol
