    I took my grill off to plasti dip it. No problem. I have the black honeycomb grill inserts, which I really like. They seems to be held in with clips of some sort. How do I get them out so I can put them back correctly.
    Thanks

    The inserts are held in with a push style locker. If memory serves me correct get a straight pick or very narrow screw driver and push the center through the keeper then the outside of the keeper will pop up and out.

    Used a very small Phillips screwdriver. Worked great! Will the go back together as easy? I have washed the grill well, and am going to scrub it with alcohol. It will be black in a few hours.
