Installing Chrome Grille?

HI, my first post and im soo very excited about this forum and the jeep commander itself. I have a question for you guys, mainly maximo becausse he has done the same thing that i would like to do to my commander. Does anyone have step by step instructions a PDF or can scan me them or even write out detailed ones? Im purchasing a commander next week and i wanted the chrome grille but before i purchase the grille i want to be sure i can install it correctly. Thank you

Re: Installing Chrome Grille?

Piece of cake. you take out the 7 or 8 plastic clips on top and lift the grill off. there are instructions in the box but trust me you wont need them

Correct... easier than changing the wiper blades! (they aren't hard either...) It takes less than 5Min to do! Enjoy!

Re: Installing Chrome Grille?

I just got our new chrome grill and installed it. Pc of cake. I went to put the chrome hood air deflector and it has lousy hardware and no matter what I do, I can't get the hood to close without hitting severely on the grill. I'm sending it back. Also, I went to put on the chrome gas door and the holes are off by 180 thousandths. No big deal except you should'nt have to hog out the holes on the vehicle to make fit. The dealer is going to call me back and is extremely helpful. Anyone else with these problems?

Re: Installing Chrome Grille?

Dealer just called. Gas door. Wrong part number. It's for a cherokee. Deflector: didn't say much but he'll take it back and refund. Cool, even if it fit I think it would catch a lot of debris under it.
