    i used a flat head screw driver to loosen and then pulled it slowly off with my hands.
    its quite sharp, btw, i may have lost a lot of blood and gained a few scars on my palms.

    I removed my chrome v grill part in less than 5 mins. I used a soldering iron to melt the plastic tabs/glue then pulled the v off.

    To put back i pushed the v grill in place, added some glue then used the soldering iron to melt it all back together again.

    I removed someones else chrome grill by this method.......

    Have a mate with you.. They keep an eye out for anyone approaching while you yank it from behind as hard as you can, Hopefully it comes off in one piece. Then jump in the car and scarper!
