Caution : Use care not to disrupt the wiring in the brake duct area

 

Note front bumper does not need to be removed!

 

 

 

 
 
Step # 2 : Mounting the SS Grille to the Original GM Plastic Grille

 

With the front grille removed, drill 3 holes using a drill bit the same size as the supplied screws. (On the top of the middle and two end section of the vertical fins) Insure that the 3 screws can move freely once inside the drilled hole.

Insert the metal C6 grille on the inside of the plastic grill, insuring that it is centered. Insure that the tabs are level with the plastic bumper tabs on the GM plastic grille. Also insure that the lower middle metal tab is centered with the lower plastic grille bolt hole.

 

 

 

 

Secure the C6 SS Grille with the 3 screws provided. Do not over tighten, but make sure screws are secure. To insure correct angle fit, move the middle up and the sides down if necessary until grille is in correct position.

Insert the original 5 screws into the lower part of the grille ( This must be done before finished grille into the car!)

 

 

 

 

Step # 3 Reinstalling the Grille

 

Carefully insert the grille back into the car, the same way you removed it.

 

Use a string or wire to hold back the plastic cradle while you tighten the  two outer screws (wrench or small socket is best here)

 

 

 

  

 

 

From underneath the car  tighten the  remaining replacement screws through the SS Grille ( You should have all ready tightened the two otter screws ( Do not over tighten but make sure screws are secure)

 

 

 

Replace the plastic fasteners (left and right sides)

Replace all removed hardware

Re-assemble the lower brake duct panels and inner fender panels.
