    Anybody know ( before I attempt it ) how to get the front grill off a 2011 swift Starfire? Is it the four bolts with the star shaped allen key?

    Want to put my two badges in the grill.

    Tar all

    Hi, do you use your shower? Does the water run under the shower door?

    Just to help you buy the right tool that is a Torx screw.

    They come in 2 types, normal, security. The security ones have a pip in the middle and need a wrench with a hole in the middle.

    Here is copies of the PDF for the front grill.

    View attachment 11568

    View attachment 11569

    Open Grill.zip and inside are two pictures. The first picture is the grill with securing bolts (1a), undo these.
    Picture 2 is a securing button which again you undo and remove it.

    Open Grill2.zip where there is a third picture. Remove the grill from the vehicle releasing the attachment pins (1).

    Refitting is the reverse.
    1. check that the centre front grill is not damaged.
    2. Place the centre front grill in position fitting the attachment pins.
    3. Tighten the bolts securing the centre front grill to the bodyshell.

    Hope that helps.

    Steve.
    p.s would have put all pictures in one folder but they were two big for the stated upload.
