Does anyone know how to remove the front grille? Found a few catches and fasteners but it's still held tight.

Easy when you know how!

From under the bonnet remove two plastic push rivets. Then at the bottom of the grille in the lower horizontal slot release two clips. Once those are done there is just a series of trim clips around the indicator area and along the top edge. Just pull firmly.

A big thank you to Darren at KAP for letting me disturb him while he was in the spray booth ;)





NOTE: Photobucket back up so pictures added.

You can't tease us with half a story?!

WHY are you taking the grill out? (on a brand new car?!) ;)

Wandered off for a bit... you'll find me in the garage building a Jimny Buggy ;)

I'm replacing the horn.

I have a Stebel Nautilus compact Air Horn. I had it fitted to my previous car ans it has to go on the Jimny. I was hoping it would fit where the std horn is, but it's a bit tight, but I have a plan :whistle:

Do you have better pictures on the location of the push rivets and lower clips?

Where do I start to pry the grill off. I'm afraid to break it.

Thanks.

I should have added. with the bottom clips just insert a screwdriver and turn 90 degrees, the bottom of the grille will pull away. When refitting and it is pushed into place turn 90 degrees again to lock into place.

The part number for the bottom clips is 72115-78R00
For when you break them because you didn't know they were quarter turn and you couldn't work out how they released
