So here's a thread on how to remove your front bumper cover and change your grill f you want.
I have a few more pictures I want to add but these are the main difficult bits.
It's around an hour job.
NB:VERY IMPORTANT!! You will have to remove the wheel arch flares to access two small hex screws which hold the side of the bumper cover in place. The wheel arch just pulls away but there are a number of 'push clips' used here to fasten the flare to the bodywork and they WILL snap!!! Make sure you order around 10 white and 4 green clips from Jeep before you start. Don't say I didn't warn you!
Remove all of the following
1) 5 large torx bolts along the top of the bumper cover under the hood. (pic to follow)
2) 4 press clips, 2 left and 2 right on the top of the grill above the headlights, use a flat screwdriver or similar and pull out. (pic to follow)
3) 7 medium sized torx bolts along underside rear of bumper cover (pic to follow) Note, you will NOT need to jack the car up. Just lie on the ground and wriggle under and look up underneath, you'll see them.
4) Turn the steering wheel full lock and remove the 2 philips screwes from the front inside of the wheel arch liner and the single philips from just underneath. (pic to follow) You do not need to remove any more of the liner than this.
Now the tender bit...proceed with slight caution!
5) Use a plastic automotive interior wedge or similar and lever back the bottom of the wheel arch fender. Apply increasing but consistant pressure until you pop off the first couple of plastic push rivots. They are pretty hard to get off. The first 4 are green and are less likely to snap.
6) Continue to pull back the flare...slowly... You will snap the first couple of white rivots but don't worry (so long as you have spares!!). You should see two philips screws - IGNORE THESE! They hold the two sections of the bumper together and you cannot seperate these two parts with the cover on the car.
7) You will see two small No.7 hex bolt/screws. You will need to pull the flare back far enough until you can undo both of these.
That is it! That's all the screws and bolts you need to remove to get the cover off.
8) Pull the wheel arch liner away and reach inside to unscrew the 3 lightbulbs on each side, indicators, fogs and day lights.
9) Now, pull the top of the grill fairly firmly toward you until you feel it pull away from over the headlights on both sides. Don't be scared, just keep pulling and it will give - it won't snap. Make sure you're pulling the grill only and not what it's connected to!
10) Next, grip behind the bumper cover on each side and pull forwards away from the wheel firmly. You might want to work the cover slightly up and down until it releases but once it goes it will well and truly go and the whole bumper will come off and onto the ground on that side.
With the bumper now off it's pretty obvious how to tackle everything else but here are instructions for swapping out the grill.
11) There are around 9 small torx screws holding the grill to the bumper cover, simply remove all of these.
12) The grill kit comes with the top plate attached so I'd suggest removing this as your one will still be attached to the Jeep and have cables running across it. If you don't do it now, you'll go to fit the bumper cover and realise what I mean...I did!
13) At this point you might also want to consider whether you want to plastidip/paint the chrome accents on the grill as they are fairly easy to pup off with a sharp knife snabbed in behind each of the clips. If you don't do it now forget it, you can only get them off with the entire cover and grill off the car.
14) Finally, you'll want to grab some long nosed pliers and squeeze the back of the white clips that hold the rubber molding to the top of the grill. This is to stop the hood from slamming the grill each time it closes.
Now just do everything in reverse to get the thing back on which I'm sure you'll find is much easier than getting it off the first time...
....think yourselves lucky you have these instructions...it took me hours working out I just had to rip it off once I had removed all screws.. I'm also waiting for some new clips to arrive so my flares are holding on for dear life with just 1 or 2 instead of 6 or 7!!
