Venting On Push Clips

    I really hate those 'push clip' things we have to remove to do some mods.

    I've broken like three or four trying to get them out! I'm just using a flat head to try and pry them up but they just snap!!!

    Arrrggg!!!!:rolleyes:


    Thanks....

    You sure you're poppin them out right? You should just use a flathead to pop up the center piece only and then pull from that popped up center piece and they should pop right out...

    I ordered about 15 or so replacement ones b/c when I got my car back after dropping in the new motor, there were tons of them missing all over.

    LOL! Nothing crazy yet. I would never hold back from you guys!!!:biggrin:
    It'll be posted when all done.

    Just some painting etc. I changed the fogs to the colour match from hoen. But yeah, when ever I've come across these stupid things they bust into peices. I stick the flathead underneith the center peice, kinda turn and pry and snap, the tab cracks and breaks right off.

    Cube, where did you order more? I think I should be buying stocks in these things since I'll need some more. ;)

    I have yet to brake any of mine, but from constant on/off of these clips have prematurely worn some of them out so I did get new from Joe also. But it might be the cold weather up in Canada that hardens the plastic so they could be prone to breaking/snapping much more then usual.

    I order extra because when I took off my grille the top just snapped on one. I don't remember the temp outside that day.

    The cold could definately have something to do with it. (It's supposed to be -20c tomorrow morning!):eek:

    BaBa, I've tried to look around http://www.InfinitiPartsUSA.com but couldnt find them. So I sent an email to Joe. I'll get around 25 or so.

    Thanx for the help.
