    Default Rear Lower Grill

    How is this grill removed from the bumper on the SRi???

    Have uncliped the 2 clips, have removed the 6 rivets. But there's loads of teeth that I can't seem to release. My hands are in shreds trying to release them. .

    Any one know how to release these please. Thanks

    TBH its a ****in nightmare to remove as the lugs are very tight that hold it to the bumper and invariably break off when you finally get it free,perseverence is the name of the game mate,i actuaLLY thought about leaving it off and grinding back the ridge that holds it as it makes ther back end look less bulky,you will see what i mean when you eventually prise it off mate

    i took the stanley knife to mine, once you have removed it the lugs just push out and the new one goes on dead easy.
