    Hi peoples,

    Had a quick glance on here first and it seems the bumper comes off but i wanted to know if the front grill was removable without taking off the front bumper??


    Many Thanks , Jon

    yes it is, i just pulled my grill out, just pulled on one corner till it came out then worked along, people will tell you not to do it as it damages the clips but mine were fine and its gone back on fine

    Just to be clear, do you mean the whole grille or just the chrome surround??

    If its the surround, this will unclip, you can use a plastic scraper, or even a ruler to prise it off, just go round bit by bit and pop it off slowly, this is what I did and it was fine.

    whole grille will come off without the bumper coming off. I even changed my lights to devil eyes without taking it off , just PILF.
