    Hi i have a 2008 S3 8P2 and i want to remove the fog light surrounds/grill, and then the solid backing plates to allow a hole to be cut in it for an air intake.

    Do they pull off or unscrew ?

    Pull off fella just be careful not to brake any clips.

    Pull off, if I remember its eaiser if you start on the outside edge but as said mind the clips, they snap off easily

    Pull of in the fog corner 1st towards the front of the car, then slowly prise the edges out, they can get stuck tight in there & break the edging, so patients needed.
