REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1, 2 and 3

The grille is removed in 3 sections, one center and 2 side sections. The sections are held in place by screws, clips or a combination of both. If equipped with screws, remove the screws securing the section you wish to remove. A grille section can be secured with a single screw or as many as 4 screws, depending on the year and model of BMW.

If the grille is secured by clips, use a suitable prytool to remove the clips.

Note that on early 6 Series models, the center section of the grille is spring loaded, so do not loose the springs when removing it.
