In Reply to: How do you remove the grills ?? posted by Ben on June 08, 1999 at 13:58:50:

: I had some advice about punching in the grills to take them off, but that seems "dangerous" for the grills.

Hi Ben,

I've been "Grilled by Greg", and replaced my black grills with 'chromed' ones.

Like you, I felt that "thumping" was a bit primitive, so I had a look at the rear of the grills, and located the clips which hold them in.

I then used a screwdriver to lever the clips open enough to slip a folded bit of cardboard in, wedging them open. The "thumping" effort was much reduced, and could be done progressively, not all in one hit.

Bottom line - you *do* need to give them a firm whack to remove them. Several folks have done this, with no harm.
