Should just pop right out with some force. Pop them out from inside. Here are diagrams on where they attach.

Agh, this thing is causing me a world of pain! I try to detach the little hooks from the inside and pull out, but there always seems to be another hook--some of which I can't even reach! Otherwise, I'm afraid I'll break the grill...can anyone be more specific?

Thanks

Dude, just torque on them a bit. They won't break. I did mine in about 30 seconds, really. I simply reached my hand between the slats and pulled hard. They came right off, no breakage.

They actuall have small clips that line up with slots and they just pop back in place. It's hard to explain, but you will see when you get them off. If you push down from the top while you're pulling out it snaps right out. I work at a dealership and have seen many replaced, that's how I know. Just have a little faith brother. Grab it near the top and pull down and out towards you. They'll come right off.

You can order 330 grille parts right from the dealer, I think mine were like $27 a side. I work here though, but your cost would be 30 something.
