    I have done this mod before on a fiesta ST but it was very easy to remove grill, I just don't wanna be messing taking bumper off then on then off then on. It's the chrome that I'm not sure about?

    The grille is attached to the back of the bumper so you will have to take the front bumper off.

    Right bumper is nearly off, one of the screws on top of grill has threaded badly so were waiting for drill to charge whilst having another brew then we'll drill it off and bumper should just pop off. Then the fun begins!!
