Removal of front bowtie questions

Has anyone removed the front bowtie on the grille? Is it glued in place or secured by clips?

1st. Open the glove box, in the back there is a nut, turn the nut untill all the tention is off the bolt.
Next pop the hood and look for the little red anchor rod( pass. side below the a/c). unbolt all the retaining bolts and remove the rod.
Go back to the glove box, A phillips head screw will now be visible. unscrew it and you will feel the slack pull back.
Finally get your kahooter ring puller and put it on the embelem, turn 3 turns and it comes right off!

It doesn't matter really. If you remove it, you will have a large impression of the bowtie since it is inset into the grill.

I took a picture from behind the grille. It looks like it's clipped in.

Is that what it looks like to you guys?

Oh okay. You should be fine then. Pry it off with a plastic body filler spreader.

SLP makes a filler pirce called the landing pad. You can install SS or RS emblems on it. I believe Revolution Motorsports has just a filler piece that fills in the bowtie indentation but completes the lines of the stock grill.

As for removing the front bowtie. Get yourself a pair of work gloves. Get a good grip and firmly but slowly pull and twist and it comes right off. I did it and I have the bowtie delete kit on my car. The glove are very important or you will tear your hands up.

What is underneath the bowtie once it is popped off? I am asking because I want to put an SLP SS emblem and Landing pad on.

Do I have to modify the grill any? TIA!

Just a recessed area with two verticle and two horizontal slots. Look at the picture in post 5. The SLP landing pad will fill the area as pictured in your link.

It's not cemented in... you need to remove the tension on the clips.

I just did my front and rear bowtie. The front is a pain in the arse and a two person operation. One person has to keep tension and the parts that get loose while the other keep fiddling with the clips behind it to get them off. I found this link, but didn't remove the top part of my grill to get to it. I just shoved my skinny ass arms in the hood lift section with a big flat head screw driver. It was a pain to get those center clips off. Anyway, for the rear one, I'd suggest doing what this guy did so you don't lose your spot.

When I got the Phantom grill I had to take off front bowtie. I just ripped it off haha, probably wasnt the smartest thing to do but no damage was done to bowtie or car so i guess i got lucky.
