    black grill???

    brilliant guide mate. Just wondering if you could tell me where i can get hold of the grill with the black edging, mines chrome at the moment but prefer it in black.

    cheers pal.

    any seat dealer can supply you the grille,just give them that part number number i gave you.the only other option is to take off the chrome surround and get it painted by us or someone else.hope you get it sorted

    Nice one Jace. I used this guide today. I didn't snap any clips even though it was cold cos I'm pretty much F1 engineer standard :rofl: but I would've been lost without this.

    BTW Lumby, I got the slatted grille with the black surround from Sere motors for £40-something. Nice chap.

    Has anyone removed the enclosed grill on an ecomotive??

    Want to wrap the chrome in gloss black, but have realised you can't get a screw drive through the grill to assist with the two side clips..

    I only removed mine by getting at it from the outside. I slid a bit of thin plastic between the edge of the grille and the paintwork and then used a couple of taped up flat headed screwdrivers to 'unclip' it (after I'd removed the plugs at the top).

    There is another very good guide on this subject elsewhere on the forum with, what looks like, images from a work-shop manual. I'll see if I can find it again and put on a link...

    Taken from terrymcg's post in "Honeycomb grill (not the insert)". I used another screwdriver rather than "lever U 30800":

    Cheers Grezza,

    Good info:D Think I'll wait for things to warm up a little before I give it a go!

    Surround

    hi there, can you tell me did you replace the silver surround on the grille for the black yourself. If so where did you get the black surround from?? Thanks.

    Great guide, didn't look too different but I like it. Good guide too. I would probably spray the inner grill just to make it a little more noticeable. I have a black Leon so not sure what color i would pick.

    Fitted this today, I tried to do it properly (with what tools I had!) and eventually just pulled it off by accident/with force. Clips broken but as everyone else says it REALLY doesn't matter, if anything makes life easier to take out in future!
