how do you remove front plastic grills?

Recommended Posts

My grills have also turned gray, and I'm getting the nose and hood painted soon. Given replacement grills are only $19 each is it worth simply painting them (black) or will the paint just chip off?

Also, any particular maintenace I should do while the nose is removed?

After I was hit the cover was replaced, and the grills replaced at the same time. Not worth playing around with.

The only thing I checked when the cover was off was to make sure both of the horns work. The horn closest to the ground is known to go bad. If you have a bad horn the time to replace it is when the cover is off.

I would also clean the radiators and the AC condensors while the bumper cover off.... but that's me.

That is an excellent idea! I'm taking my bumper off this weekend, and would like to clean these two things as well.

What is the best way to clean these? Garden hose from behind??

and/or compressed air. It helps if you loosen the A?C condensers so you can clean the front of the radiators too. See my 3rd radiator DIY for pics...

All done. I can't beleive how easy it was to remove the front bumper. I got the bumper off, removed the front grills and had them painted and back in the bumper inside of an hour.
