Is this somehow different for the non-M and M-sports? there's just no way for me to get my hand behind the grill enough to push the clip down. I'm barely able to squeeze a flat had screw driver in enough to release the top clips, which i finally did, but have no way of reaching the bottom ones. any help would be much appreciated. thanks!
It's the same for M sport and non M sports. Make sure you remove all the torx screws under that strip and you should be able to fit your hands back there with no problem.
