Front Bumper Grill Mesh

Postby Stephanie Hembury » Wed Sep 28, 2016 20:28

Hi Guys
My new Cappo has grill mesh at the back but not at the front so I would like some advice and guidance on how to fit this if anyone has done it before. I think can get the mesh ok over here and have a couple of work colleagues willing to fit but would be good to get an idiot guide to fixing so to speak. :)

I think the answers are in the Parts Catalog.

Click Manuals at the page top, then "I agree" and then select the UK Spec EA11R Catalog (Your car is the JDM one, so the Catalog below it is really the one for it, but there is no difference in this area, so you might as well use the one in English :D ).

Go to Fig 68, and you'll see the shapes you need (parts 5 and 6). They are secured with 12 nuts and 12 washers (parts 10 and 13). I guess the bolts are captive to the bumper.

If the bolts aren't there, perhaps you could drill some pilot holes and use self-tapping screws and washers. If they are too rusted to use, perhaps you could substitute small cable ties for the nuts.
