Title: 2006 2.5T Front bumper removal
Post by: RichyF on October 28, 2013, 02:01:42 PM
I'm trying to replace the upper grill (the one containing the Ford emblem) and seem to have to remove or release the whole front bumper assembly. What do I need to remove?

Four or five torx bolts on top edge iirc grill clips into bumper but not 100% sure if you can remove with bumper still attached to car.

Mirez will be able to give a better explanation.

No he wont! Not played out around with the S-Max that much. What I can tell you is that it can be taken off without removing the bumper, looking at this image would suggest there are 3 clips that hold the two together:

Thats a facelift grill but the pre-facelift's bottom end looks identical.
