    This is going to sound silly but have you found all the clips. I would double check as when I did mine with wedging flat screwdriver bits in all of them the v came off with only a bit of pushing from behind and a bit of pulling from the front.

    I take it you have removed the front bumper?

    The v grill does come of on its own as you have found out its a pig to do. You could do wot i did and paint it on the car much easyer

    V off on its own and I must admit I found it easy. Maybe I'm just the lucky one.

    Try lifting the clips up a big more to see if you then start to release it. Push from the back a bit the pull from the front a bit. It will come off this way unless previous owner has glued it or something
