MCA Grille

Just installed my new MCA Grilles from #LEVITTOWNFORD on my 2014 Ruby Red Vert. Took 15 min. How to do this you might ask??? Its really simple and no tools required but Masking tape.
1. Place Masking tape on the bumper area under the grille.
2. Pull really hard with your hands on both sides of the grille fingers in the holes, it will take a bit of force but it will come off and you will not break the plastic tabs. Those are some thick tabs with a shallow lip. Just give a really good FIRM tug and it will pop right out.
3. Pull out bottom one same way. I will say that I had to reach down from Upper grille opening and pinch the top middle tab while tugging at it from the front but it came off after just a few trys. MAKE SURE TO DISCONNECT AIR SENSOR ON THE LOWER GRILLE LOWER RIGHT CORNER BEFORE PULLING IT ALL THE WAY OUT.
4. Clean up the layer of dirt and grime and install the new set. AGAIN MAKE SURE TO REATTACH AIR SENSOR ON LOWER GRILLE FIRST.
5. To re-install its as simple as lining up tabs and pushing the grille in. Remove tape and take pics for us to see.
Let me know what you think.
**This weekend the GT/CS Spoiler gets installed.**

Just wish they did this grille with GT fog light openings.

Did you install your fog lights? Was that the Starkey kit?

Looks great! I love the MCA grille...gives the car a more aggressive look.

Can the tri bar pony emblem be removed and replaced, easily?

Thank you. Installed my CS grill much the same way. My 14 V6 Premium did not come with fog lights. I got them from eBay Ford seller. Switch from Amazon.
For info, with the CS grille the TriBar will mount on either side.

Honestly did not look at it before I installed it but from reading other threads on here it seems like a pretty easy modification from what others have said.
