Has anyone removed the front grill? The piece I am looking to remove is the grill that has the Nissan emblem on it. Looking for any pointers on how to remove it.

Check the Service Manual located on this site, it has everything you need to get it done, I know there are a couple screws topside, and through 2 of the front holes there are release clips from what I can tell. I am getting ready to remove mine and do something custom, maybe remove the emblem, fill in all the holes, fiberglass it with waves or something cool like that.

Thanks. I have the service manual. I just wanted to see if someone had done it and the degree of difficulty.

I could swear the Service Manual says to disengage the back clips with a screwdriver, but that .pdf says squeeze with pliers...

Thanks for the .pdf

that top clip is a PAIN to remove, you just push the big side in with a medium screwdriver and pull

I used a small screwdriver to pull them up. Then I proceeded to pop another 50 or so. This car is riddled with them.

The grille came out very easy, the headlights not so much! :mad:


I have never seen a car so devoid of screws and bolts in leu of these pop clips.

^^Wow not much to it..im going to try to make something from something I have..does it only snap in on top? Or does it snap on somewhere else too?
2 Pop clips at the top and 2 screws and compression fittings at the bottom. Very simple.

Me wants a Denkei grille!
I like that too but this option addressed the middle and valance in one fell swoop and tied it all together. In my opinion I got the best of the Krom look with out the big bumper look and Sat radio :p for way less too :yes:

I have received huge comments on the new look. It had an very Japanese look before (thats not a bad thing) but this toned that down and just added what the car needed. I sooooooo love it! I have a personal parking spot and I used to park it so the odd rear window was out now I back it in so the grille shows. I cant wait for my bulbs to arrive.
