Default how do you remove front upper grill ?

i got the 3 screws out on top, but the grill seems to be attached on the bottom somewhere. I dont want to pull too hard. How do you get this thing off?

There are clips that clip into the plastic bumper. I wrapped a cloth around a flathead screwdriver and slid it inbetween the grill and bumper to pry the grill out. IIRC there are 5 tabs connecting it to the bumper. Just move slow(1 tab at a time) and you'll be fine.

You don't even need to use the screwdriver technique j0n mentioned, just grasp near the bottom and lift up with some force (going from left to right or visversa). You shouldn't need to force it too hard either, it should come off pretty easily.
