Thanks! I tried doing it myself, and it usually works fine, but it wasn't working this time so I said screw it. I hope this helps everyone out!

And yes, it is RIDICULOUSLY easy. I swear I saw a how-to on this forum about it, but I couldn't find it, so I posted this one. Video is probably easier to understand than written directions anyways.

I was able to remove the piece while the car was in drive, and off. While the car is in neutral, you cant shut the car off. If your just swapping it out, its probably easiest to just remove it in neutral with the car is off, but if your in drive, take your time and do it in park with the car off, cause you can't leave it running for several hours while you paint it. I hasn't thought of this until now.
