Hello everyone on this beautiful sunny day. :D
The plastic mesh grill on my front bumper is broken. Does anyone know if it is simple to replace. Thank you.

Yes you can replace them, taking the bumper off is the easiest way for the center one, they are only clipped in place, you can get to the outside ones by removing the lower screws from the front wheel arch liner

Perhaps you could document with pictures how you get on? For the benefit of other readers :)

The thing is I do not think that you have any room from working under the car, once you have the front under tray off, and that sound damping panel see if you can get to the clips.

There are no instructions for just changing the mesh grills
