I want to do it without taking out the bumper, did you just force pulled it?? I'm putting a boss grill on mine so don't care If my tabs break on the original grill but I need my surround to be un-damaged
Yes I just pulled it. You don't have to worry about the surround breaking, there isn't really a chance of that happening. The plastic used for the surround is ultra durable. The inside grille is another matter, but it sounds like it doesn't matter for you if those tabs break.
