Hi I Am an opel user and just bought the vauxhall front chrome piece. I thought that removing the chrome piece would be easy but I cannot figure out how. Any tips?

Well when you get it just observe how the plastic joins the V then take it off the way you want, I have no idea how it is connected haha

Sorry, I thought he bought the full grille, and wanted to change that.

I think the silver's just clipped in with clips, so you should be able to prise it out. Ask Noddy, as I think he took his off to paint it, didn't he, unless he done it on the car?

it's funny how people in the uk want the opel and the ones having opels want the vauxhall grille : )

Yes it is just clipped on, I tried to undo the clips but it still won't come out, maybe there are some other clips on the certral part near the opel logo. Cannot figure it out, were in 2 trying yesterday and in the end we gave up.

Finally managed to remove it. The chrome strip is just clipped on. I had to brake two of the clips in order for it to get a little loose, after you break a couple of clips it is easy to unclip all other clips. Maybe with some patience you manage to unclip all of them without breaking any but it is difficult because it is too tight, and anyway it will go back in place even without all clips on.
