    Having just had a coming together with a duck (Argentinian Racing Pigeon if your saw The Two Ronnies the other night) it has destroyed the small plastic air guide grill around the fog light in the front bumper. Anyone any idea how easy it is to replace this grill.

    For anyone who has access to the ETKA parts catalogue its shown on illustration 807-00, item 25, part number 8P3 807 682 A.

    I'm hoping it can be changed without have to remove the bumper !

    Dave,

    I'm sure there is either a retaining screw or clip that holds this in place. It definately comes off from the front to allow access to the retaining screws for the front fogs.
