REMOVING THE GRILL
Firstly ensue hand brake is tightly in place and car is in gear with engine off and keys removed,
Lie down in front of the grill place the palm of your hand on the lower Painted part of the bumper and the other hand as shown below,

Gently pull the panel from the bumper and work your way around anti-clockwise
inch by inch gently pulling straight not at an Angle,

Ready for the new grill to be mounted you should eventually look like this Picture Below.

My choice of Replacement Grill was the Titanium grill with the chrome lip,

The chrome and the grill are two separate parts which should be clipped together prior to mounting, it is also advised to mount the number plate while the grill is off the car,

To attach the chrom piece to the grill prior to fitting on the car
Gently press the chrome lip on to the grill again inch by inch working you way around the panel,

Once the number plate is fitted to the grill,
Gently line the grill up to the front panel of the car

Starting in the lower right corner gently line the fins of the grill up with the slots around the panel,

When pressing along the bottom of the grill pull the painted panel gently towards you to ensure a tight fit
and also that it doesn't split while your pushing,

Once fitted correctly the body panel at the bottom Centre the thin part should stick out slightly more than the grill,
if it doesn't, your grill is not pushed in enough,

Gently push the lip of the Grill and pull the pannel at the same time until snug
