Gday all probably a bit of a silly question but how the bloody hell do I go about removing my old crappy NF Fairlane grill without breaking it? I'm looking to put an EF grill on and while I have it as a reference I don't have a socket deep enough to go over the spike bits. Any creative ideas anyone?
Cheers

needle nosed pliers and delicate operation.. (if the small bolts are not done up too tight...) worked for me after having the same problem...

yep pointy nose pliers, but will be a slow process.

Just go to super cheap and buy some tube sockets for 6 bucks
