    Default Help! Top Grille Removal

    Guys,

    I could really do with some help here please.

    I am wanting to remove the top grille from the front bumper. Bumper came off fine, and i have fiddled with the clips etc for the last hour trying to figure out how to remove the top grille and chrome V without damaging anything.

    Can anyone who has done this please give me some pointers, or better still edit the pictures which might show a logical process on how to remove it.

    It would be greatly appreciated!

    Be careful, I have damaged mine chrome while removing. I broke few clicks and chrome strip just fell off druing ride on motorway Use some knife, these plastic clicks are veeery fragile. If you are careful, everything should go well.

    Finally got the Top Grille assembly off.

    What i did was locate the tabs which attach the chrome strip along the bottom and up the sides, gently open the gab between the tap and the plastic which locks it into place, and slide in a cable tie to keep the gap slight open. Did this for all the tabs

    Then it was a case of gently pulling the chrome strip and all the tabs popped out with none being broken.

    Then just a case of jiggle it around a bit to remove it completely from the bumper
