Question Gun Sights

Hi Guys, how do I remove the top front guard emblems.?
At a guess, can I get to them from removing the headlight housing, or removing the inner wheel arch.?

Thank you.

You don't have to remove anything. You should be able to reach up behind the splash shield and get to the nuts with a small ratchet and extension. I believe the nuts are either 3/8" or 5/16".

Hi Chris

My gun sight emblems were loose & like you, I was thinking I could only get access by removing the headlights. Not necessary!!

You can access that bolt if you lay under the front bumper and look upwards. Feel around with your fingers. And wear some goggles! All sorts of dirt will be falling down on you. It is a 3/8" nut.

Cheers
Lex
