This is for anyone who is about to purchase and Install your Mach1 Grill Delete Kit. Bye Bye Honeycome & coral.
2002 (not the only year affected) Mustangs do not have 1/4 inch screws holding it in place
. They have a 7mm
bolts that you have to unscrew from the lip when bending back. 4 of them will be a b i o t c h to take off and give you quite the headrush from hanging your head upside down, trying to figure out why your 1/4 inch wrench wont work. U cannot get a feel for the shape of the bolt - given the angle and no visibility. Couldnt go under the bumper because of the crash foam they have blocking access.
How "I" did it
ulled the grill back (dont worry, it wont break off, its really strong yet elastic and goes right back into place,even if you pull it good), put a socket wrench w/7mm on the screw under the part u pull back. Then applied pressure pushing down, got my pliers to unscrew the ribon like clamp holding it in place on top. B4 & after that, was easier then anything I've ever done to my car. After talking w/another guy, he said the 7mm thing really pissed him off as well. American...not always SAE, Now I carry MM tools as well.
