Grill Emblem

Anybody ever removed the grill emblem? I have a 2006 and need to know how to remove it and install a new one. Can you help a brother out?

IIRC, there should be either phillips or allen screws behind the emblem in the front grill

Here's a picture of the back, can't tell if they're some type of screw or rivets.

Looks like a Phillips head screw or a rivet in that pic.

If I'm not mistaken these retainers are the screw type flat caps. Very difficult to remove with the bumper on the car. I saw a video some time back where the guy just reached behind the grill with some pliers, broke the pins off the old emblem, took the caps off the old pins, and used them to attach the new emblem. Probably the easiest thing to do. Problem is I can't remember the year model he was working on.....yeah I'm a gettin' old.

BTW, I thought about changing mine. But, when I looked at getting to the back of the thing I quickly decided the old one was fine.

Would it be very hard to remove the entire grill to make the change?

Not so much that it's difficult, but can be time consuming as I've done it before.. Approx 9 years ago I was looking into doing a grill swap in which a friend of mine let my borrow his V6 pony package grill to find out if it would fit.. Needless to say, I ran into no issues uninstalling my OEM GT grill by first removing the radiator shroud, followed by removing the 10mm bolts on each side holding the upper portion of the bumper cover in place.. Last step is release the mounting tabs attached to the bumper cover.. There are no clips nor any flat screws that require having to be broken off in order to uninstall the grill.. Therefore you shouldn't run into any problems when uninstalling and reinstalling your grill.. Just take your time with a bit of patience and you'll be just fine

Edit: located this video from you tube.. Perhaps you'll find it useful, as it provides step by step instructions for uninstalling/reinstalling the front grill assembly..

There is a good video on YouTube on how to remove the bumper. I'm too lazy to do it, but it doesn't look very hard at all.

FYI, I'm too lazy to even do that Rocky......

But just in case I get energetic, how many beers does it take to change the grill. I want to be prepared.

I'll put it this way Jim.. The last time was 9 years ago and as I posted earlier it can be very time consuming and really takes some patience.. Needless to say, it took 7 beers to prevent your's truly from losing his patience lol.

Once you get the hang of it after the first time, it doesn't take long at all and also much easier as well

I believe you can reach in there with something flat and push the pins that hold the emblem on and force off the retaining pins. I did that and mounted the running pony on the back where the fake gas cap was. Looks good in my opinion.
