i DID skylaw, but im confused about what i read. here is the part i read:
" i can remove the headlamps without removing the bumper, but it's very tricky for you guys.
first you need to loosen the bumper:
*pull out the lower grill (just tug it out quickly)and remove the two bolts.
** remove the two bolts on the upper part of the bumper (you can see that one).
***remove two screws on both front wheel arch trim on the front part (the other screw is down there).
****inside you will see between the bumper edge and the fender is a long flat hollow clip that snugly fit between them.
now remove the screw which locks this lock, and pry it towards the inside and pull it backward. you can see that there is an open cut on the front part which serves as a hold.
pull the bumper slightly out just enough for you to remove the headlamps. you can remove the whole bumper too, it's more convenient since you will have good space. nothing holds it now after detaching the PTS (parktronic sensor) connector."
ok, in the part i highlighted, when he says LOWER GRILL, is this what he is talking about, the black mesh looking grill where my arrow is pointing to. i just pop that out?
