How in the hell do I get my old Fairmont EF Grille off. I got all the screws off except the two in the middle on the top are impossible to get off.

Please help!

get a small spanner and see if you can loosen them - then undo with your fingers - thats what i did, or get a socket that fits and dont lock it into the extension bar, just sit it in there loose and undo - hope it helps!

not a good idea... do you have a larger socket set? longer reach in socket or go to your local crash repairer, they may help...

the grill backing is metal so you will most likely break the bonnet too, go see the mech - he would be likely to have the right tools
