    So I replaced my Valance myself kinda. I figured the best way to find out the best way to take the darn thing off was to go ask my friendly Chevy dealer and sure enough they gave me the trick. It's a tool that is used for taking snaps off of upholstrey, it's a forked little jewl. I ventured over to my local parts store and $5.00 later I had the tool. The wbhole replacement project last about an hour. Thanks fpor all the help from eveyone.
