2. Eliminate the screws (They are plastic so I would make use of a hand screwdriver as well as not power) from the plastic radiator cover

Several of my screws wouldn't unscrew, so I used higher pressure with a flathead screwdriver and also it worked on most of them. I damaged one off even if I couldn't get it out. When I put the screws back in, I just made use of hand stress and I really did not need to use a screwdriver. I may need to replace these with steel screws!

3. Eliminate the corner auto parking lights. They are held on by one star screw from inside the hood. A little flat head could be utilized if you do not have the right devices.

4. Eliminate all the screws that hold on the Grille border body part. A lot of are on top under the plastic radiator cover you removed and 2 are behind the edge lights you got rid of.

5. Now right here is the biggest discomfort. Under the Grille border you have a plastic shroud that's hung on by plastic pins that go in easy, but not out simple. I utilized a level head screwdriver as well as eliminated the two from the sides that connect to the fender. The pins might obtain a little screwed up but I was able to recycle mine.

You just need to remove two from each side. Don't remove the pins that remain in the facility of the surround. These were a HUGE annoyance for me. I ended up mutilating my pins as well as scraped up my bumper a little. I did not like this step one little bit! I was able to put them back in ok. 2018 ford f150 replacement grill

4. Double check to see to it all clips are snug before placing the grille border back on the truck. Do not what to take it off once more.

Return all components backwards order.

This was a little more involved than I believed it would be, yet the outcomes are worth it. I'm not looking foward to doing it once more when I install my fog lights behind that grille!
