Front Grille Kit 2001-06 - Chrome Mesh - for BMW Mini
Mesh front grille kit (Upper and Lower)
to fit BMW Mini 2001 -2006
Replace your worn or broken 'JCW style' mesh front grille with this chrome item.
This kit includes the upper grille (fitted to the bonnet), the lower grille (fitted in the bumper) and fitting kit.
This grille is made from touch ABS plastic and finished in chrome.
This style of mesh grille is fitted
as part of the John Cooper Works (JCW) Sports Pack bodykit.
We now include 11 x flange nuts (used for fitting the top grille) which we feel are an improvement on the standard 'push fit' nuts (as used by BMW!) - these are not supplied by many other sellers.
This is not a genuine BMW / Mini part.
This grille will fit the Mini models where the headlight lift up with the bonnet ( R50, R52, R53 )
We also sell this grille in Matte Black and Gloss Black - see our other listings.
Offer up the new parts before to check fitment before proceeding.
Open the bonnet to access the rear of the grille.
Undo retaining nuts on the inside of the bonnet and remove existing grille.
Fit new grille and secure with supplied
washers and 'push nuts'.
Please note: The location tabs may be
been removed by the supplier on the lower grille - these have no impact
on the fitting of the grille. To secure the lower grille in place the
fitting clips may require a small piece of double sided tape - see
video for detailed explanation.
See below fitting and demo video.
