    Default Managed to Screw up Fitting my Irmscher Grille!

    Well tonight I tried in vain to fit my facelift Irmscher grille after AGES taking the bumper off and AGES getting it to sit right I just couldn't manage it

    The grille clips in fine at the top but will it heck clip in at the bottom it just won't fit!!

    I'm going to go to my local vauxhall garage tomorrow and stump up an hour or so labour and get them to fix it right, hopefully providing I've not broken anything lol!

    I feel really gutted it looks nice but just isn't sitting properly.

    How did you guys do it and also what about the screws they give you there's holes in the black surround but there's nothing in the grille bit itself? Did you drill holes into the grille or anything?

    Thanks!

    Just taken delivery of a chrome top Irmy grille for my motor too.


    Went to a local body shop who is going to fit it for 30 quid. I know it's more expense but at least i know it will be done properly.

    Believe me mate I would do that it's not worth the hassle! I think you got a bargain for £30 though!

    I just got charged £60 from Vauxhall for them to fix my mistake and I'd already taken the old Vauxhall one out for them! At least it looks nice now though!
