Great idea. Thanks!
Yes, at the back of the van on each side you can find one of these covers, they open into the space inside the d-pillar at the rear.Hey BOS- this is the pillar rear-most, correct? And vented. And I'm missing something here; why? What am I missing here? Is this a fresh-air vent that feeds the interior and up/out the roof fan?
There’s a way to get the grille off without taking the bumper off, but every attempt I’ve seen has resulted in a cracked grill. I’d like to sell the stock one so I didn’t want to break it if at all possible. I still tried, but after an hour I wasn’t comfortable with the amount of flex so I decided to remove the bumper.OK, what am I missing here? "take my front bumper off to replace my grill."?
This we must do in order to replace the grill? Pls explain.
Sharing your photo's in this thread might be good for a Before and After.Go for it. It'll impress mice? Squirrels? Really short people who can see your shiny black non rusty components? That customer base is important to me so I did it.
oh, I really started to do it because of the failing powder coat on the OEM hitch receiver. It seems whoever makes factory receivers use powder coat that fails in a few years on a lot of cars I've seen. My Subaru, friend's Acura.
