Remove Grill

I am looking for some step by step directions on removing the grill to clean the condensor. There are a lot of bugs on it and want to clean it up.

Anybody know of a sticky that covers this or offer any suggestions?

There are 5 clips that hold it on at the bottom of the grill. And I believe 5 bolts that hold the grill on in the top.



Here you can see the support that goes around the condensor. If you look on the bottom of the support you can see several rectangular holes. These are where the clips are. Take a long flathead and press down on the clips to pull the grill out after you have taken out the bolts in the top of the grill that you can see with the hood popped.

To put it back on just line those clips up and push them back in and bolt up the bolts and you will be set. Just don't tighten them up too much and break/crack the grill.

When i did my zoodad mod I first undid the f or so bolts at the top of the grill. tehn I got a long screwdriver and reached in through the top of the grill and pushed them clamps down to pop them out. After I got done the five or so clips it ealiy pulled out. it was actually heavier than I expected. If you undo the five top bolts you can easily see the clips you ahve to push from the top of the grill.

OOPs I didnt see pain responded to this thread too. o well now you ahve twice the knowledge lol

Awesome, thank you for the photos and help. It seems like it'll be a 10 minute job to get it off now thanks to this!

No problem. And yes it litterally takes 5 minutes to remove the grill of these trucks. Good luck!

I must be a idiot, cause i cant figure out how to take the grille off. I took the top screws out, and the grill folds forward. I can see the clips on the bottom, i have a long screwdriver, i press down on them and nothing happens. Nothing pops/clicks/moves/nothing what am I doing wrong?

Just give it a good yank at the bottom. It should come out. I have removed several this way.
