How to Remove Front Grille
 
Hello, I'm a proud owner of a 2013 Buick Encore. :)

I'm wondering if any of the members here know how to remove the front grille of the Encore? It's the one that has the Buick emblem and that has the waterfall design.

I have a custom buick emblem that I received from a friend that I would to attach to it and it needs to be screwed from the back (nuts and bolts).

I'd appreciate it if you can teach me or if you can point me to the right stuff.

Thank you in advance.

im going to take a wild guess here

are there any covers around the latch area under the hood? if you can remove this cover you may be able to access behind the badge to remove it with some extensions and angled extensions.

if not.. you have to remove the front bumper.. which is usually a bunch of clips and some bolts and screws all around the bumper

havent done this myself but you can try just figuring it out, can't be that hard.

Thank you very much for this reply. I'll see what I can do.

just poke around

you'll figure it out
front bumpers are usually pretty easy to take off anyways

Can't tell you much about how to remove the front grille, but I am interested in seeing the new emblem that you are planning on attaching. Would you be able to post a pic of it for us to see at some point?

Yup, it's all just a bunch of clips, screws and nuts holding it together and maybe some small brackets.
