    Default Removing facelift front Griffin?

    Hello everyone, im new here and before i even have my car (picking it up soon) i have a question. I helped my cousin remove his Griffin logo from his front Grille, the thing is the clips broke off.

    I want to do this to my 07 facelift so I can fit the new Griffin.

    Is there a way I can do this without snapping the clips??????


    Thanks for the help!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the tip but the thing is i didnt want to remove the grille from the car, i want an easy option, im a bit lazy, lol

    So i suppose snapping it off is the only option unless i use a soldering iron from behind?

    I forgot to ask one more thing,

    Glynn You know when you say melt the plastic on the new badge to secure it do you mean the pins on the new Grififn badge match the holes in the old grille, so its just a straight swap?
