Grill Removal

Recommended Posts

Just fitted a Brink detachable towbar and need to remove the plastic part behind the grill.

Anyone know the easiest way to remove the grill?

Cheers.

Your Lex will look like a rhino if you attach the tow bar thru the grill :whistling:

Yep,

Removing the plastic bit behind the grill allows better cooling for the engine when towing.......according to Brink.

Sorry, asleep on first post :blink:

Lift the bonnet up (Duh! :P )

Undo the screw in the centre of the grill

Give the plastic screw on either end of the grill a 1/4 turn and lift up (I used an old smooth knife covered in tape, to protect the paint)..... i bet £10 you break one! So be really gentle with them.

The bottom of the grill is hooked in so you'll need to push it quite hard inwards towards the engine. Or if your arms are skinny you maybe able to reach them

Job done

The plastic backing is fixed on with a few clips (obvious to see when you have it off)

:winky:

Managed to remove the seal plate without removing the grill.

Pair of long nose pliers to puul the clips.
