2014 Grille Removal

Has anyone attempted to remove the new '14 front grille fascia? I want to pull out the chrome rings and have them painted to match.

Does the outer front fascia just snap out w tabs like on the '13s even though it runs under the headlights now?

They do but you have to get to the back of the entire fascia to pop out the rings (at least on the 13's you do)

Re: 2014 Grille Removal

Well that sucks - thanks for the great find! Hopefully I can get a trim stick in there and pop the rings off b/c if not that's quite a bit of work.

Re: 2014 Grille Removal

yes...get trim sticks and use painters tape to protect your paint. Once oyu get one off...the others are easy breezy.

Re: 2014 Grille Removal

Can you remove the fascia from a 2014 and pop on a 11-13 Summit fascia? I miss the old grille.
