    Step 2. Unbolt the 4 bolts and 2 snaps holding the active grille shutters and shroud assembly on and disconnect the sensors

    2 of the bolts are just above the crash bar

    2 of the bolts are above the top of the air shroud

    The 2 snaps are found near the top just on the outside of the shroud. They can be undone through a small gap in the frame (I ended up cutting mine as they were 1 way plastic bolts and I did not want to fight with them. The will need to be replaced during the install.

    Disconnect the AGS control and ambient air temp sensor. If you are removing the AGS for an upgraded intercooler you will want to pop the ambient air sensor off of the AGS casing.
