Here's the fitting guide.....................

When fitting the grilles fit the lower grille FIRST!!

Fitting the lower grille first will ensure a good tight fit before fitting the upper / larger grille.

If your thinking of removing the bumper then this guide will definitely help. http://www.mountune.com/downloads/Fiesta_ST_IC_install_rev1.0.pdf

Fog Surrounds first

Quite an easy job here which will take you only a few minutes to complete.

First thing to do is remove the old surrounds, it's easier if you take the chrome piece off first and grab in the same area and pull (quite hard) until you can get your other hand under the edge to  gentle pull it off.

That's the hardest bit done, you now should have something like this.

Give the exposed area a quick clean then get your nice new surround, Line up the tabs and the slots and push it home, you are now done.

Front Grille .........

When fitting the grilles fit the lower grille FIRST!!

Fitting the lower grille first will ensure a good tight fit before fitting the upper / larger grille.

Ok this one isn't as easy as expected and be prepared to get sore hands.
There's a few ways to do this. A trim tool will come in handy. Use the tool to pry off the chrome  trim first. Place the tool on the inside of the trim and gently remove.

Once the chrome trim is off, use the trim tool to release the clips holding the grille on. Give the grille a gentle tug and that should release it from the car.

The other option is to pull the grille from the car starting from one of the corners. Once started gently but firmly pull the rest of the grille from the car. Be warned the grille can break so be prepared.
To avoid any breakages I recommend removing the front bumper using Mountunes guide here. http://www.mountune.com/downloads/Fiesta_ST_IC_install_rev1.0.pdf or using a trim tool.

Next you'll need line your new grille with the slots on the bumper and push them home until you've gone all the way round. You should now have very sore hands but be admiring your hard work.

Lower Grill ..........


As the upper grill really, start by pulling off the grill, clean the area before placing your new grill into the empty space.

Push the new grill home and your done

Front Spoiler next ...............
 
Start by removing the black rivets from under neath the front bumper, there will be 8 to remove and will require you jacking up the front of the car so that you can get good access with your drill.

Posted Image
 
Once removed you'll need to fish out the old pot rivets. this is a pain but be patient.Next you'll need your new spoiler and rivets.
 
Posted Image
 
Posted Image
 
Place the spoiler in the locating holes under the bumper, insert a rivet where the old ones were, and pop away until all 8 are done and the spoiler is firmly in place.

Your all done and should now be loving the Zetec S look.

Thanks might consider this.I really want the Mountune carbon one but at £150 its a bit pricey and if I scraped it on a kerb I'd die.

Hi There

I have just ordered a 2014 titanium with 17 inch alloys and full dress up kit in black. I want to put a honeycomb grille on the front and came across your thread. Do you know where i would be able to buy the grille from and do you think a garage would do it for me (being a girl!). Also as its a finance car, i would need to put the old grille back on, is this possible?

Thanks

All the info you need is in the first post Kia.

I would say order your grille and get your ford dealer to fit it. Your looking at 1 hours labour charge to do the work. Options should be ok as long as you use ford parts. If your not sure ask your dealer for more info.

I got all my parts from my local ford dealer. It took a few days to get all the parts with the exception of the main grill which came from Germany and took a week.

Mick give yourself an hour for the main grille and lower grille, 30 minutes for the fog surrounds and 2 hours for the lower spoiler / splitter.
