Radiator grille: common faults and their symptoms

  1. Damaged fasteners
    • When the component is pressed, you can see that it is loosened and unsteady.
    • Sometimes the component may fall out of its seat.
  2. Cracks and other mechanical damages
    • The component is held worse in its seat.
    • Component deformation is visible.

How to repair or replace the radiator grille?

The possibility of repair depends on the component design. Sometimes it can be repaired, for example, by installing a new mesh, if it has been deformed or broken. To do so, remove the radiator grille, extract the faulty mesh, install a new one and firmly attach it to the grille.

Some car owners attempt to repair damaged fasteners by gluing or welding, however, this is strongly not recommended, since restored fasteners have worse strength than a new component, and it is fraught with imminent malfunctions and loss of the component when driving.

In most cases, it is recommended to replace the radiator grille. This procedure is quite simple and does not require special skills, so you can do it yourself. The old grille must be dismantled and a new one installed — most often it is secured with plastic tabs. Sometimes bolts are used for adding strength; in this case, they are also to be unscrewed.

For vehicles of various models, the process will have particular nuances, for example replacing the grille may require dismantling the bumper. In this case, replacement should better be performed at a service station, since it is not a simple procedure.
