Euro grille - 2002 Upper / 1998 lower

I just installed my 2002 Upper Grille and 1998 Lower Grille I ordered from European Parts. I used the Upper Euro grille with US Turn Signal mod for instructions. Got both shipped for $112.67 USD.

The instructions were pretty good and got me through the install. Since this mod was documented in 2001, it did not account for the 2002 upper grille.

Upper Grille
When you install the 2002 Euro upper grille, you will need to cut out a small piece in the middle or your hood latch release will not be accessible. In Europe they have the hood key lock so they probably don't have the hood release latch.

I used 6/32 by 3/4inch screws with locknuts instead of zip ties for mounting the turn signal lights.
I only need to mount the top two screws and it is on there soild. I also didn't drill thru the turn signal lights to mount the turn signal lights like documented. Instead I left two tabs at top when I cut the turn signals from the grill and drilled the holes on the tabs.

Lower Grille
Pretty straight forward using the instructions. I only needed to zip tie the two ends and two in the middle and it snaps in there pretty tight.


Overall, it did take me about 2hrs to do as documented. The hardest part is cutting the turn sigs off the old grill. Sawing the Fog light mounts from the lower grille was a cinch because the plastic was alot softer.
