Take out the one screw, the just pull starting at one edge work you way around. You'll be hard pressed to break anything big ass white clips holding that on. Only thing that may happen is a few might stayin the body, if so just pull out and put them back on the plastic.

Very easy! thumbsup

yup, just take out the screw in the handle then pull.

I start at one edge and work my way across. It's held by those white pop off clips. Some might go flying when you unclip it.

Good luck. it takes some force.. I didn't break any so jut go for it. thumbsup

Yep, pull like a mother.

Always helps to pry it off with a screwdriver too.

The punch in screws are alright. The ones I hate are the wheel well plastic screws. I had to break them to open it up. thumbsdown
