    Default Urgent Help Needed with removing facelift grill?!

    Hello,

    I'm need in urgent help on removing the facelift v grill from my bumper.

    We have the bumper off, have loosened almost all the clips we can see & it still won't shift!

    Do i need to remove the chrome strip at the bottom of the grill?

    Please urgent help needed!

    Cheers.

    No mate no need to remove the strip.

    When i did mine I placed flat head screwdriver bits under each clip then slowly edged it out. There are quite a few and you have to do everyone not just some.

    Tooth pics work or aswell.

    Hello mate.

    Can you tell me which clips need doing to take the grill part out?
    Do you pull it out of the front of the bumper or out the back of the bumper?

    Any help would be great.

    Without looking at it again I can't tell you which clips (over a year ago) but take your time to look at it and it will become clear. Its what I did.

    Also you need to push from behind the grill, pushing it out of the front of the bumper (if that makes sense)

    Don't pull it out from the front, push from behind

    Good luck

    Ah just out of interest are you talking about the whole grille or just the front v?

    I have not removed the whole grille but only the front V and backing plate which holds on the vx badge.
