    Yeah I have the new facelift and there is a gap where you can put your hand through..I tried this but cannot feel anything behind and did try pull it but then chickened out fearing I would break it.

    just kidding :moa: i know how it is when the car is new. i grabbed the ends of grill from the outside and pulled it one side first and when it comes off then other side of the grill. why are you doing this if you don't mind asking?
