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

So we're going to remove the lower splashguard on this CRV '09. It's missing all the push-pins in the front. If we had them, I'd remove them. But I'm going to go in the other sequence of how to remove the rest of it.

You have to go in the fender well to get the two clamps up here. There's one, here, a push-pin, and one here. So I'm going to use my body clip tool, and I'm just going to pry them out. There's one and there's two. So these are push pins I'm noticing are broken. Someone broke the head off of them. So obviously that's going to be really impossible to grab.

So this one was accessible from up below, and I just pushed down hard with my tool like that and it came right out. There's another in here that the head's broken on it. I don't think I'm going to be able to get to it to push the pin out, so I'm going to grab a pair of needle nose. Whatever works for you. Got to just really use your ingenuity. There we go.

There's also a ten millimeter head bolt that goes through the plastic. That's not uncommon for these for the clamp to spin on the other side, which this one is doing. I can feel it. I just lucked out--I got it with my hand. You might have to put a pair of pliers up in there. I got it. See the clamp was broken. The plastic broke right off. So I got to hold that enough to spin it out.

And now we're just going to repeat the same exact locations on the passenger side.

So once you remove that last bolt, you can pull down your undercarriage shield and set it aside.

So we're going to re-install our under frontage shroud. So this goes under this front plastic. When I received it, it wasn't in the proper place. Here, look, you have eyelets that go in place here. And they snap in. See a lot of these hanging down on people, on their cars and stuff. It's plastic and y'know, we got our great roads of New England with potholes that are wicked on the cars.

I'm going to try to use some of our salvaged plastic push-pins, at least hold it up in place. There, now it's held in place and I'll just use plastic ties, and see if I can maneuver, fit them in there, or I can go buy some push pins.

This one's broken, but what I'm going to do is I'm going to get a flat-edge screwdriver and I'm going to try to pry it open, get the plastic piece that's broken out of there. You just want to salvage this enough so that it will try to keep it up. There's three plastic ends here, so I'm going to slide it right through one of them here, and see if I can get it to stay so we can try to keep the edge up here. It's going to be easier than fishing a plastic tie through. Be careful not to pinch your fingers. You have to go with the vehicle though.
