CHEVY GRILLE ASSEMBLY REMOVAL

2005 Chevrolet Colorado

2005 Chevy Colorado Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80,000 miles

need to remove grille assembly to replace passenger side headlight assembly ( replacing due to condensation)

Haynes repair manual only mentions 2 clips on upper grille assembly - looks like there are 6 total (4 with push down tabs and 1 behind each parking light assembly)

Don't know if there are more clips or tabs that I can't see, and I don't want to break any plastic pieces and wind up having to replace the grille assembly.

Your best advice for grille removal?

I have had same problem due to rain. Seal around HL assembly is leaking. I drilled small 1/16" at lower corner of front of HL to drain water. Used an air hose to blow water off lens to hole through bulb hole. Then sealed HL assembly with silicone caulk around assemble -- so far so good.
