Iíve updated the first Post of this Guide the Guide to Include a Download PDF File of the Guide.

Figured this would be useful to others being able to print out the Guide and refer to it during the Modification Process.B)

if your grill has the chrome lip then you need to pull the chrome lip instead of the black grill because the grill is seperate to the black grill
but it is the chrome that is clipped to the bumper section.

Thanks mate,
Ive also upgrade the front upper grill, but i didnt create a guide due to some people having difficulty with their bonnet lock after changing grills,
I thought it best not to leave myself open to blame and accusation lol
Its an easy upgrade though, just remove slam panel screws and two from top of grill then pull straigh forwards.
Only tricky part is transfering the screw and spring from the flip badge to the new grill, ensuring the pin on th3 spring stays 8n the corrisponding holes.

You really need to remove the grill to put the chrome on it
i mean you can clip the the chrome on it, no ?

The Titanium spec grill from ford comes in two seperate parts.
The grill section is just a flat surface and is not capable of being fitted to the bumper without the chrome grill suround.

The chrome suround clips around the specific grill centre, and also clips to the bumper
It is impossible to fit the genuine ford chrome surround on top of any other grill except the specific grill centre from ford.

Well this is embarrassing... can I have more help please?!

 

I have the titanium trim with the chrome... How do you pull the chrome trim... theres nothing really to pull on?

 

I've followed the guide (I think) and I can kind feel the clips inside the grill by putting fingers through the grill.. but it seems completely tight. I don't even seem to be close to removing a single clip :(

 

Any extra advice? How do the clips fix in place, and which way should I be pushing?!

Hi mark,
Kneel down at the left hand corner of the grill,
Put left hand on bumper next to grill and hold steady.
Put fingers of right hand through grill to pull the rear of the chrome.
Pull hard with right hand.

1, 2, 3 pull.

Then continue this around the grill,

Well I've got it off, but broken most of the chrome clips in the process!

 

Anyone got a part code / price for the chrome surround (the grill is fine - its just the chrome that I've bust!)
