    I had to trim my grill a touch and chop my tab quite short for it to look right

    so the 'how to' wot shorten it enough?
    can you still pull the tab easily if you chop the 't' shaped end off??

    when i had mine i drilled a new hole in the tab so it sat further back, got it sit fairly flush with the grill which i was happy with.

    Follow the how to and it will move the tab backwards without the need to chop the end about

    the seems to be a lip on the underside of the top slat that could catch the tab if its cut too short, has everyone cut/filed this down?

    ...for anyone who is planning to chop the T shape off the end....DONT DO IT!!!!!

    i've chopped mine off, before i read the how-to...i now have to carry a long nose pliers in my glovebox for wet days when the release tab gets slippy!

    planning on getting another one from vauxy and doing the mod the propper way
