    Open bonnet.....take of all the grille screws....think they are 8....replace grille...put back screws on and ready to roll....at least is that simple on preface, I guess is the same on facelifts.

    No completely different I'm afraid, the grill is clipped in & the easiest way is to remove the front bumper, however I managed to break the clips off the old grill & fit the V-grill without having to take the bumper off, the original grill was totalled in the process though

    Facelift is a pain as the grille has a carrier behind it that has to be replaced too. It is part of the bumper so that has to be removed to get to all the clips. I did mine and it took over an hour

    Caterman was that an Irmsher grill?, I fitted a painted V grill into mine by carefully breaking the old one out (I cut each clip with side cutting pliers) then clipped the painted grill back into place

    Yes m8 Getting the "V" off should be ok with the bumper on but the backing piece has to come off when replacing it with an Irmy one
