    How to fit an S4 grill?

    Have just got an s4 grill but was wanting advice on how to fit it before I go and break something. Assume old one unclips somehow? But how does it clear the bonnet release handle?

    A step by step guide to switching grills would be perfect and pics would get you on my christmas card list!!!

    Also I like my current quattro badge, can that be fitted to an s4 grill, would feel a fraud using an s4 badge and am proud of my quattro status!

    many thanks in advance.

    Pretty straight forward mate lift bonnet up as you can see it has wedge type clips all around top and bottom at the rear of the grille and on the (sides mine have now broken) oops. Just need a screwdriver to push in the wedges . its a tight fit.

    It will all become clear when you take the old grille out you will see the release handle with clear in between the four rings.
    TBH i haven't seen a quattro badge on an S4 grille, looks like you will have to modify the quattro badge and glue it on maybe? or buy another from eBay and butcher that one.

    I dont blame you for not showing off your quattro status!

    Thanks Ras, grill will be here this week so hopefully looking at it will make it all come clear. Am happy to butcher a new badge so may give that ago or somehow attach the quattro to s4 badge fixings. Will have a play next weekend.
