Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

We're going to pop the hood. Grab the handle right there. Pull it back. To release the safety, come over here. Then you're going to pull up on the latch. That'll come up, and pull up on the prop rod. Stick it in right there.

We're going to pull this grille off. I'm going to use some needle nose pliers and a straight screwdriver. Back here, there's some clips, so I'm going to squeeze on the clips right here, the screwdriver. Just pry in here. You'll hear them pop off like that. Right here, there's the lower one. There's the upper one. So, you just go in behind here with the needle nose to pinch it. I'll show you a little better once it's out. Right here, you're going to take your straight blade screwdriver and push down. Pull that clip out. Over on this side, squeeze these. Take your screwdriver while you're squeezing the clips. It'll pop right out. These are the clips that from the back side. I was taking the needle nose and just squeezing them and then popping them out, just like that.

We're going to install the grille now. We're going to line these tabs up right there and line up the center tab as well. Just push gently. There we go. Put the prop rod down right there. Close the hood.
