    Piece of cake, just unscrew 6 of them from under/inside the bonnet... screw the new ones in place - thats how it was with mine, took all of 3 mins !!

    Open bonnet, undo the s6 screws and lift out old grill

    Place new grill in recess and fit either 6 or 4 screws depending on type.

    You may want to modify the bonnet pull, to make it sit flush (not essential but better looking) - see the how to in the usual place

    Other than fitting rear lights its probably the easiest mod you could do [assuming its a Mk4]

    Ffoeg only missed the final stage "Stand back admire work then take some pics of new grill fitted to share with the people of AS."

    insider knowledge is cheating Mr Ffoeg.....

    ...also if it's an Irmscher grill you will get another questiopn asked about the bonnet pull

    Just trying to encourage people to give us as much info as they can, so we can give our best advice
