    I have also just replaced the grill on my FR. I also was having trouble with the last two clips on the side. I think the temperature (-5) contributed to the trouble, in that the plastic was brittle and my patience thin. Eventually i gave up, drop kicked the screwdrivers into the pond and pulled the grill out. Needless to say, i broke the clips/slots on the bumper but the new grill fits securely.

    I would advise to perform the transplant when its warmer!

    Your best just asking Seremotors. No dealers over here seem to be able to get a hold of them, and Dave always has the lowest prices.

    Its called a Linea R Grille.

    hello there jace,

    where did you get that "behind the original grill" honeycomb add-on, the best i could find was the whole honeycomb bit, not just the underlayer...

    thanks for sharing

    Hello,

    Well thought this job sounded easier than changing the grille on my Civic.. how wrong I was!

    Took the little clips out at the top, lifted grill up a bit and inserted a screw driver, locating the clip with my fingers through the grille.. hmm then... nothing! It may be a ridiculas question but am I supposed to press the clip in? It wasnt budging.. maybe the wd40 will help this??

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.. I will not be beaten! I dont think long nails are helping matters haha

    Cheers in advance guys and girls :)

    Hi there! I can't tell you exactly where to look for that, as it's been more than 2 years since I changed my grille, but I've taken photos of the whole process which should probably help you out.

    Go HERE and check it out. :)

    Edit: here's a couple pics that probably show what you need.

    Finally got round to changing the grille. I couldnt get to the little clips so figured a bit of brute force did the trick and it did :)

    Think I need some form of mesh behind it now to tidy it up a bit but much prefer this grille to the OEM! :)
