05 F350 grill removal

Can somebody help me and tell me how the heck my front grill comes off my 05 F350?! I know about the 4 screws on the top but it looks like there are some clips at the bottom and I dont want to break them. Thanks

those clips are a biatch. take a flathead screwdriver (in between the bumper and grill) and pry up on the bottom of the clips and it will pop them out.

Just pry them up towards the hood? On the very bottom of the clip? Should I pull on the grill upwards at the same time? Sorry I just dont want to break them or the grill! I couldnt even see them from the outside I saw them from the inside. Thanks

there should be a little piece of metal between the engine side of the grill support and the grill just put the screw driver between that piece of metal and the support and twist it should come right off.

yes pry them up towards the hood. you do not have to raise up on the grill but you can. It might help it might not.

I've always just pried on them from the bottom and pulled outward on the grill and have never had any problems.
