Exclamation Can inserts on a grille be removed w/o damaging anything?

So I wanted to find out if I can remove just the inner parts of the grille w/o breaking anything or affecting the inserts.
For example the mesh part in this grille:



or the billet style



Any input?

I did a switch on mine and found it relatively easy. I took the whole grill in the house and did it on the kitchen table . Most important take your time. If it's cold where you are take it inside and let it warm up.

Place a folded towel or blanket under it, or you WILL scratch the grill surface and be unhappy.... just sayin

I agree, warm it up. I swapped my horizontal chrome insert for the black honeycomb this past summer. Just take your time and you won't break anything.
