Jeep Grand Cherokee grill insert removal

Hi everyone,

I just purchased the gloss black grille inserts. Not the mesh grille but the outer plastic pieces, it looks like I just need to unsnap the current chrome ones and snap the new ones in. Can anyone confirm that it is that simple, or if there is more to it. I attached a pic of the new pieces, just looking to get some info before pulling anything apart.

Thanks in advance

I can understand removing plastic pieces to be able to access behind the grille but seriously you need to remove the whole bumper to switch out the chrome insert rings??

Yes,, if you try to doit by pulling the bumper ,you may brake something ,,remember everything is plastic,,just gi to a body shop they have all the tools to handle..i pay $150 to remove the bumper and install rhe tow hooks ,,the grill have to be more more less than that..

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee grill insert removal

i hate to say it but you have to remove the entire front bumper. then remove the girl from the bumper. I just removed mine this morning to plastic dip and wasn't too hard once i saw it all in pictures. and after you remove the front bumper once its pretty easy. heres the link i used to remove mine. best of luck! let me know if you have any questions about removing it.

You.dont have to remove the bumper or grill. Ive removed mine many times. All you need is a.set of plastic trim sticks and painters tape. Theres directions in the wk2 srt.forum.
