    Default help!! how do you remove the Vbar on a Facelift

    Hi

    I have bought a VXR style colour coded vbar instead of the massive chrome one. Only trouble is i cant seem to figure out how to remove the old one thats currently on the car - any ideas before I break it!!

    Edit - its a facelift, so the grille is not straight forward to remove.

    I believe the grille is attached to the bumper, which needs to be removed. Andyvec posted some pics somewhere.

    cheers mate, I saw that thread but didnt fancy removing the whole bumper. Got it off in the end, but even with the bumper off i reckon it would be right pig to do. Its not screwed in, just held in place by those anoying tabs where no matter how careful you are some always seem to break!!
