2016 Xe prestige auto replacement grille

Post by greevesrunner » Tue Sep 10, 2019 2:22 pm

Today I was unfortunate to hit a young pheasant bag in the middle of the front grille creating a large hole!
I would prefer to do the replacement myself
How easy is it to replace the grille?
Is there any real difference between grilles across the range?

There are already a couple of threads about this topic. Just search for front grille or front bumper. There is also a pdf about how to change it yourself. If you are interested, i have a Standard black grille with Chrome surround for sale (since i switched to a Chrome one). If you want some more info, send me a pm.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction I had not managed to locate the info but managed on a second try.
Your chrome grill sounds a good upgrade which I will think about
Best regards

Hi
I tried to pm you but it seems that I have not been on the forum long enough to have that facility?
I would be interested in buying your original grille
What is the going rate?
Best regards

Many thanks to "PFGMG" for the advice and also to "Jags" for his instructions on how to replace the grille.
Today I have successfully managed to replace the front grille on my Xe.
I coped on my own, fortunately the box that the new grille came in was exactly the correct dimensions to support the bumper as it was pulled out.
I was going to post a picture of the new chrome grille but have not yet worked out how to do it
So thanks again folks

Good to hear everything worked out! Did exactly the same thing with the box of the replacement grille myself!

Now I've cracked adding photos

Two of the old and new grilles

I maybe should have mentioned earlier but I have no connection with the firm that supplied the new grille
