Exclamation Front Emblem Removal?

so im planning to "black" out my emblems...more of a black chrome. i know its gonna be easy to take the rear ones off but does anyone know how to take the front one off? it seems like it would be harder...

You would have to pull the bumper to get the grill off. Then you could access the emblem from the back Never tried to take the H off, but i am pretty sure you it has screw or plastic tabs holding it in!!

why bother pulling everything off? just go crazy w/ the painters tape and spray the emblem?

you can access the emblem tabs from behind the grille

the bumper doesnt need to come totally off, but it does need to be dropped down away from the core support in order to get behind it

That is true, just drop it down enough to get behind the grill. That should work!!

the emblems are not chrome, they are made of plastic and coated with a chrome-like finish



there are two tabs that you need to remove before you can remove the emblem properly...here is what they look like from the behind the grill





i painted the rear emblem awhile back with plastic primer and flat-black spray paint...never had a problem

Sorry, the guy mentioned painting it chrome, i was just giving the heads up on clearing chrome paint, not the chrome finish on the emblem allready!! In my experience it dulls the chrome paint.
