968 bumper removal

Recommended Posts

I just bought a new mesh grill to replace the old one with rock holes. Problem -- I've removed every bolt I could find under the bumper but can't figure out how to get access to the grill. Has anyone done this that could share their wisdom. Thanks. Dave

Maybe this will help...


I just performed this procedure... How much patience do you have??? :>))

1. Drop the Under Bumper Tray (1) and set aside with all bolts an screws carefully marked as to position... helps to jack up the front end on wheel ramps and lower securely.

2. Remove the Oil Cooler mounting bolts. Rather tricky, but can be done. DO NOT disconnect the oil lines!!!

3. Remove the small bolts holding the air director (49) (flexible plastic part) to the bumper support struts...

4. CAREFULLY work the air director piece out of the bumper cavity and set aside...

5. NOW, you can reach the 18 (yes, count 'em!) small philips head screws holding the Grill to the Bumper from the rear. Using a very good Philips Screw Driver, carefully remove each of these screws... PATIENCE Here!!!

Reverse for reassemby!

Need to do similar to my car. Current (OEM) grill is so beat up that I can't get any good measurements for it. Thinking of having a local metal shop cut out a perforated metal grill piece for me, but don't have accurate measurements. Anyone have the dimensions of the grill insert?
