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.
