here is the write up:

open the hood to expose the engine bay:
1) remove the two 10mm bolts

who hold the grill, so you can pull it back when you remove the headlight housing

move down to the wheel well:

who hold the fender liner to the fender

4) use the flat-head screwdriver to pull the body clips away from the fender
