Can someone tell me how to remove and replace the stock grills from my 04. The body shop is telling me that the whole bumper has to come off to reach the 2 clips per side.

I removed my lower plastic grill to mount my laser shifters. There are 4 clips and they just slid off with a little pressure. Re-installing them was a pain but can be done without removing the bumper. Not sure about the upper grill, should be able to get to the clips after removing the plastic radiator cover.

I was refering to the two upper grills. I had the bumper repainted today and wanted to replace the stockers with the performance package style. I had the body shop leave them off since it looked like such a pain.
Since I'm new to the GTO world, can you tell me what a laser shifter is ?

The laser shifters, if I'm not mistaken, confuse police laser.

I dident get to mine today but I dont see y cover has to come off. Looks like remove clips across top and pull back enough. Gna try tomorow if gets back from shop early enough.
You start trying to remove them without taking the bumper cover off and you'll find out really quickly why it's advised..... besides, it only takes 3 minutes to remove front bumper cover.

TAKE OFF THE FRONT CLIP!!! Be careful of the front two side brackets (under neath the headlights).

Take the time to do it right. If so, its a simple process. G'luck.
