    Default someone please help a plonker!

    ok not for the first time I have managed to make a right mess of my front grill. can some kind soul take pity on me & let me know how to remove the chrome strip (so I can put it back on right!) in the pics below? (already broke one) I have managed to get the front bumper off but still cant see what to prise off! as you can see there is a gap (red lines) and the top of one side is loose...
