Front bowtie (EASY): Open the hood. Stick your hand behind the bowtie and you will feel two 10mm speedbolts that need to be removed. Once removed, just pull the bowtie off w/ minimal effort as there is a little adhesive holding it on.

Rear bowtie (PITA): You have to get fishing line or something to pry behind the bowtie which is stuck on w/ some strong A$$ adhesive. Also while you are doing this, you have to be very careful not to break two little pins that go from the bowtie to the tahoe (you will know what these are once you take off the front). If you do break them, its not a big deal. I broke mine b/c no one told me about them, but it doesn't really matter. They just make reinstalling the bowties straight a lot easier.

Good Luck!

You just have to get back there and press the socket pretty decent and expect to make very small turns. At first it will seem like you aren't moving it, but it really is moving a bit....

My new one came with two strips of double sided tape already on. I added another 7-8 strips to help insure adhesion. And I pressed firmly for a couple of minutes to help hold on. Be careful lining it back up - the new ones don't have the two male ends to fit into the holes so you have to line it up by eye.
