    Default Removal of the V Grill on a facelift

    Hello all,

    ive searched and searched but cannot make head nor tail of how to remove it..

    ive removed the 4 screws at the top so i can flex it forward but i seem to have broke a few silver clips of the v grill in the progress.

    Im replacing it with a Primed V from VX anyway.

    HELP ME!

    TIA

    Ahem..........he's got a facelift veccy The Pre facelift grill is held on by 8 nuts and it fits on the bonnet, the facelift grille isn't

    There are a load of clips around the silver part and yes, you will break some off. It should unclip and pull off the grille carrier.

    as Caterman said above it will unclip, and its a right a pain in the bum to do, i think there are about 20 clips to undo.. have you taken the bumper off?

    Edit, just seen that you are doing it without taking the bumper off, i've only ever done one with the bumper off as i was changing it over
