Help with removing the grill on a 06 GCL

Hey all,

I have an 06 Grand Cherokee Lerado and I am trying to remove the factory grill so I can put some after market stuff on. My problem is that I don't know where the screws/bolts are hidden to make this happen! Any help is appreciated.

From memory, there's a row of push-in pins across the top when the hood is open. I think the air temperature sensor is clipped onto the grille, so you'll have to remove that before you pull it. Then I think it tilts out for removal, but there *may* be more push-in pins across the bottom, but I don't remember any.

There is about 8 pushin clips along the top of the grill. The temp sensor is mounted on the radiator if I remember right. Just get a small screw driver and pry the middle clip out then pull the outer portion out. I just took the grill off about a month ago to put a K&N intake in.

Hope this helps

there are 6 push pins across the top of the grill, use a flat head to pry up the pins then ease them up with a wide based flat head to completely remove them. the grill will come out if you pll the top out first then gently move the bottom portion back and forth to release the bottom tabs...there are 4 of those.

Thanks everybody for the help, I seen those pins that you have mentioned but I am a chicken so I didn't want to touch them without hearing somebody say it first.

I think there are like 8 or 9 just along the top though. Once they are all off pull the top of the grill toward you while pulling up.
