I am getting a new grille for my Charger and had a question about the install. The 2 screws in the center seem very easy to remove and I have a screwdriver I have tested out on those and will work like a charm. My question is.. what kind of tool are you guys using to get those 2 screws on the sides out? Those things are a PITA!

I used a ratchet screwdriver and others are also using a thumb screwdriver <--- not sure what that one looks like.

I used the same screwdriver on all 4 screws but I had to take of that plastic wind thing that runs down each side of the radiator. It basicaly has a pop of plastick piece that pops out on the top. and on on the bottom of the car. anyway if it stops raining i'l PM you some pics.

I used a screwdriver that I bought at Home Depot. The head is at a 45 degree angle to the handle, so it fits pretty good. You can't get much leverage though (not alot of room to move), so it may take awhile. Good luck..

Go to Sears, or any tool store, and ask for a "thumb driver." I got one at Sears for $1.99. It can attach to a socket wrench, or you can just use the piece itself (the edges are usually diamond-cut for better gripping).

go to a hardware store and ask for a ratcheting screwdriver (the one with adjustable heads) because its a little longer than the other one, it will work like a charm... those 2 screws are the most annoying thing on this car to get off!

buy some band-aids for your fingers too... :)
