    Grille change

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi all, I am wondering how difficult is it to remove the grille and replace it with another. I seen the diagrams that show the grille and that there are the screws on top and the torx in the wheel arch, but how difficult is it to remove the grille once the bumper is off?

    If you haven't done one before,its pretty tough,as some of the clips which hold it in can be tight as feck,,if you haven't done one before I recommend you completely remove front bumper,itll give you more room

    Totally agree with Dave above----i'm an old fart but I did manage---if you can get another set of hands it would make the job easier--both getting it off and back on again---Dave
