Aah Front Grill Badge Damaged By Flying Stone

Recommended Posts

Realised today that a flying stone sometime this week has 'bullet holed' and cracked my front grill badge.

Are they easy to replace or is this better left to the dealer.

i'm sure it will be expensive .

On the LS the badge is secured by two screws and I imagine yours may be the same.  However, as with most things Lexus, there's some dismantling to be done before you can access the screws, nothing major though.

Think you may need to take out a second mortgage if you got ACC though! As the millimetre microwave radar unit for the ACC is housed in the Lexus badge on the front grill.

If you have got ACC then hopefully if is not damaged but I guess you would have had a EML thrown up already.

I have just had a quick look on eBay and nearly choked on my sandwich!

I'd start with the dealer first to get the "official" price. Then I'd contact breakers yards.

http://www.lexusbreakers.co.uk/ may be worth a try. I cannot recommend them... never used them.

Yes I think its on the back burner for a few weeks. Interestingly I had a split in the chrome trim on my Mercedes E250 cabriolet which wasn't sold separately. A complete grill assembly with badge fitted only cost £300 (fitted by local MB specialist).
