Removing the Grille on a '04 Titan
#1
Hey guys,



I was looking into replacing the radiator grille on my '04 Crew Cab Titan and was wondering if anyone has had experience with the job? I referenced this Titan grille diagram and it appears as though there is a few screws/grommets and maybe even the air flow covers that have to be removed in order for the grille to be liberated from the body but I'm not entirely sure <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/017.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />



I'd appreciate any insight that anyone could provide! Thanks in advance <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt020' />
If at first you don't succeed, then you should just give up because it's probably not worth your time anyway Wink

It's very easy. Look for these clips (picture 1 and 2)

Should be 4 on top and 3 on the bottom of the grill. (give them a 1/4 turn to release)

Also look for the two outside clip, release them using a screw driver.

Once done just pull straight out.



To put the grill back, remove the clips from the truck, put it back on the grill and snap the grill back.

A great question you asked here, TitanidTruck, and one I've been asking myself.



I recently took my front grill of my 2004 Titan during my radiator install. I found the four top clips that you show but I hadn't noticed the bottom three. BBF, are you saying there are three clips along the bottom that are the same as the four along the top? I need to take another look at mine.



When I removed my grill there were at least two of what you show in the 3rd photo. I released these first and then I discovered almost by accident that a 1/4 turn released the four top clips.



When I put my grill back on I remembered that there seems to be several lower larger clips like those in photo 3 that were not attached when I removed the grill. My grill had apparently been removed by the dealer for servicing and I wondered if they had put it back together correctly. I was unable to reattach the top row of four clips but, otherwise, the grill seems pretty well attached but a little loose at the very top and I decided to leave it as it was for the time being. I need to go back and try again to connect the top row of clips. Is there a particular sequence that works best for removing and reattaching the two types of clips?

This was posted on another site, evidently there are 9 totals LOL

I've always done 4 on top and 3 on the bottom, guess I'm missing 2. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

OK, I just went out to examine my Titan and I answered all of my questions myself. When I initially took my grill off for my radiator install, all of the three lower clips had been apparently left unattached by the servicing dealer. At the time, after I removed the two top large clips plus the four top smaller clips, the grill came off easily with no attachment by the three large lower clips. When I reattached the grill after my radiator install, I noticed there were additionally clips that were not attached before when I first took the grill off that attached themselves when I put the grill back on.



Now, as to the four small clips at the top of the grill that I couldn't get attached when I reattached my grill after my recent radiator install. Today, I removed all of the clips from the truck and attached them to the grill with the "wings" of the small clip positioned top and bottom, instead of side to side. Of course the screw slotted end of the clip is mounted angularly in the grill with the four "points" positioned north, south, east and west. Again with the" wings" on the opposite end of the clip positioned up and down. Once that is done, simple push all of the clips into their mounting holes. Previously, I was trying to pull the slotted heads of the top four clips back into position. and it doesn't work.



Now I have my grill secured tightly all around, including the top row of four small clips that I didn't figure out before. Now I feel better. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/005.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt020' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

Yup, I tried for 2 hours to put my grill back on before i got a lil more Capn in me and figured out you have to put the clips on the grill then push them in the mounts. BTW, dealer charged me $10 for 2 of those fasteners. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/013.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt023' />
