    Hi

    I've mysteriously lost a chunk out of one of the horizontal bars in the lower front grille on my 53 plate TDI Sport. Does anyone know if I can get a replacement lower grille and if so whether it's easy to fit or can this only be replaced with a whole new bumper?

    I can see replacement upper front grilles for sale for my model but not the bottom one. Not the biggest problem in the world but I notice it every time I'm walking up to the car now and it annoying me!

    Cheers

    I think that is classed as the spoiler and goes right across the front. Do the air intake grilles fit into it ?

    If so it's part number 8L0 807 110 F ( 3FZ black ).

    About £100 from Audi

    It's broken where the white arrow points:

    I was hoping I could just replace that central black bit.

    You'll need to take the top grille out so you can reach down behind and pop out the lower grille (has tabs all round the outside).

    This is the 8P section of the forum. As your car is an 8L perhaps you might get more help in that section.

    Good luck.

    Cheers that doesn't sound too difficult, presumably the new one would just click into place after?

    No worries mate, I did wonder when you put that and I noticed the 8L at the start of that part code!
