I'm trying to install an upper grille insert on my GT, and was having problems getting mine loose so that I could get a better shot at removing the pony. Had to look up a way to deal with the 4 corner tabs (thanks guys!).
However, everything I read lead me to believe that once the 4 tabs were disengaged, the grille would pop out. Such is not the case with the 2008 GT. The 2008 model, I have discovered, has 8 tabs
, not 4. There are 2 tabs per side, plus an additional 4 tabs that run along the bottom. These 4 tabs are identical to the others (read "pain in the butt"), with the one exception of actually being impossible
to reach. There is simply no way to approach the tabs in a manner that you can even see where to place a screw driver and pry.
So, for anyone that's wanting to pop out their '08 upper grille, good luck!
I'm betting it's actually easier to simply remove the whole front bumper.
