S2 Grill Removal

Recommended Posts

How does the grill come out and can I do it without dropping the spoiler? I need to clean all the muck off that's accumulated on the radiator, now that summer has arrived and cooling is more of an issue!! B)

It does come out. There are two 8 mm nuts in the front compartment where the spare wheel sits and three more under the spoiler. These tighten onto studs welded to the grill. There is a good chance they will be rusty and snap off it you are not careful.

I don't know how you would get it out without dropping the spoiler, though. It shouldn't to come all the way off. Just lower it by quarter of an inch or so.
