St Upper Grille On My Zetec S?

30 posts in this topic

I have a zetec s, I want to swap the upper grille for a ST one. Has anyone any experience in doing this? I have seen a comprehensive guide on these forums to changing out an upper grille, but I am unsure if the grilles are an identical fit. Also finding an genuine ford st grille seems almost impossible, do ford even sell them?

Sorry if this question has been asked before, Thanks for reading ;)

Your ZetecS upper grill has a resale value on ebay of around 40 Gbp

Ford sell the ST upper grill for less than 30 Gbp

Can you just go into a ford garage and ask for this part? i only ask because it is hard to find any online with ford.

Hi Rh1no, I too wish to swap to an ST upper grill but do not understand how to 'look through your thread in your "signature"'. Could you send me a link please? Thanks.

Floryfocus,

Look at the bottom of this post... And there should be a link to my guide of how to fit the ST grille to your Zetec S.

Failing that have a look in the focus guides section!

My Zetec grille has gone straight back on with the st bumper! Well I say straight.... Had the same issue with the bonnet lock but I had no grille, bumper, lights etc on the car at the time so was easily fixed using your, what can only be described as life saving, guide! post-29562-138763220056_thumb.jpg
