Has anyone replaced the front grille on an 03 ?

Not really seeing anything detailed about it. I did order one from partsgeek.com for 38.69 + 10.00 shipping.

Don't have the original, it went flying over the hood & roof while the orange barrel that rolled into my lane of traffic went underneath the car and out the back. Don't think there was any other damage other than a few minor dings in the bumper cover. This just happened on my way to work today at 5:30am.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it just pops in.

I'm hoping it will pop in since it popped out really fast!

Seriously, I don't see anything broken or traces of bolts/screws. I was just trying to make sure I had any necessary mounting hardware.

Thanks!

There definitely aren't any screws. The SLE/SSEi model grilles just pop in on tabs.

It's finally in.

As stated above, no screws, only snaps in. Easier said than done. After snapping in the 2-grills into the frame, all looked good. However when snapping the frame containing the 2-halves of the grill, the grill halves would pop lose and I would have to start again. A few drops of glue where the grill inserts snapped into the frame did the trick. When putting the frame back in the bumper cover, everything stayed where it should. I did add a couple of cable ties to attach the frame to the radiator support. I attached the cable ties to the tabs on the frame that extended to the back of the bumper cover. Not really needed but I felt better having a little something more to keep it from leaving the car at high-speed.
