front grill removal

simple to remove... however, painting is a slippery slope (as they get the most abuse/rock chips up front) just Philips head screws in the front, holding in the side grills... along with one plastic thumbscrew at the back, in the outer most corners (near the corner reflector)

 then the center kidney has two sets of clips top and bottom, accessed from behind.... typically an 8mm nuts on them. good luck!

Once you removed the radiator, you have access to the mounting hardware of all three front grilles.  To remove the two side grills, the front bumper needs to come off and then the front bumper mounting tubes which protrude thru the grills need to be unbolted from the chassis frame.

I’ve had my grille powder coated, then ceramic coated with rest of car.  It looks great and it’s easy to clean.
