Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

How do you get the rivets out of the fenders ? Did you remove the whole bumper?

Push the center in with a center punch or nail set. Then you can out the rivet. They are a pretty cheesy clip compared to most on GM cars.

The whole bumper cover and grille surround come off together. Takes 10 minutes the first time. Could do it in 5 min now that I have done it once.

And there I was trying to cut the heads off these things to get them out all you have to do is push the pin in further.... Lol geez well I'll give that a shot tomorrow

Mate any panel shop or auto store should have a selection of push lock type pins just match the size to the shank of the rivet. No tools needed from then on

Pep Boys seems to have the largest assortment of all the different OEMs' plastic clips, pins, and rivets.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

Just remove the top 2 rivets above the radiators and pull up to loosen the top of the bumper plastic over the radiator. punch out the grills from the front of the car in. Takes a lot of force so be careful to not break the tabs off as u are removing the old grill hit it straight on with some care. Reach in and remove them and place the black grills in pull them from the front and push from the back til all the tabs snap in tight
