    Default removing facelift v grill

    as above is it possible to remove the chrome v part of the facelift grill without having to remove the whole grill?

    I've managed it, but it is far easier and better to remove the front bumper first. If you try to remove the vbar whilst still on the car you very well may end up busting the grille where the v-bar clips into. Youll probably break one or two with the bumper off.

    It is possible without removing the bumper but it is a bit of a fiddle.

    Removed my grille not so long back to paint it. I removed the 4 Tor-X screws from along the top and just prised out the tabs with a flathead screwdriver. You have to keep pulling the bumper forward to get your hand down behind it and yes, a few of the tabs did break but it clicked back on rather nicley and is really secure.

    gladly i managed it yesterday just by removing the torx bolts and prising the top of the bumper forward to access the lugs which unsurprisingly broke lol ive stripped everything off the v part including the black back platre and chrome griffin badge mind you i will be very careful putting it all back as theres much potential for further damage especially to the newly painted grill

    Glad it went ok.

    When i replaced the Griffin badge, i just melted over a few of the remaining tabs with a thin nozzle on my soldering iron but i'm sure a few dabs of superglue will do the job.
