Bug guard removal

i've had this thing on forever and just am tired of it.. i think my dad used self tapping screws when he put it on. is there anyway to get them out? two screws came out and the other ones wont. very annoying.

Pliers? Pull down as you unscrew, or use a flat screwdriver to put pressure on the screw as you unscrew it.

shouldn't be that hard to get them off try doing what trent suggested. and if that doesn't work a pea grinder will do it.

Use a drill bit that's wider then the screw body (not the head) and drill into the head.
