Default How to remove front bumper push pins

Hi,

Can someone tell me how I can remove the front bumper push pins to remove the fron bumper without breaking them? I tried a little too hard and the pin top circle started bending. I'm doing that to get to the front grummet studs to remove the air cleaner assembly.

Thanks

Al

You can buy a tool at almost every auto parts store for pulling them It has a screw driver type handle with a two prong fork end. The toll is pretty cheap.

"Dyke type" wire cutters-just slip the open jaw under pin and gently squeeze
