Hi everyone,

I'm looking to change the grill on my 1997 (Bubble Shape) Rover 214i but have no idea how easy its going to be or how to do it, or what to do! Any advice?

Thanks,

Adam

It's easy dude! Private me your email address and I'll send you the instructions I followed. Did the top grill in about an hour, was a piece of wee wee! Didn't colour code mine, liked the silver mesh against the purple look.

If youve got a haynes manual, it has a simple step by step guide on taking the bumper off. If not, it's pretty easy to do really, only a few screws.

There is one screw behind the number plate which has to come out, the rest are located underneath the front of the bumper and in the front of the wheel arches. Simply unscrew all of these, doing the wheel arch ones first, then the ones under the bumper, then finally the number plate one, and your bumper will come off!

It's then easy to understand how to take your grill off, by simply looking at how it is connected. Are you meshing both grills or just the top one? I reckon both grills done in the same mesh looks best.

to get to the screw under the number plate would you just take the plate off or is it on the inside??
