    Badgeless grill help needed

    Hi,

    I bought a badgeless grill off fleebay and just fitted it but the handle that pokes out when I pop the bonnet is now visible and aside from fitting bonnet lifter I was wondering if anyone has been able to mod it so that the handle is out of site.

    Cheers

    Have you checked the Technical Guides section for how to resolve this?

    You cut one side of it off so it sits back in flush, I just used a hacksaw and filed the side up smooth.

    Here's the link for you buddy.

    If you don't want to slash up your bonnet pull, alternatively you could have a crack at buying a different bonnet pull for a couple of quid

    Apparently that one is approx 10mm shorter than the one on right now, so, might do the trick. ATEOTD if it doesn't, then it's only a couple of quid isn't it
