The Parts You Need

It's easy to swap out the grille on your 4Runner. The first step is to get the right parts from our parts center, which include the following:

You Will Also Need A Matching Upper Grille Surround:

The Grille Swap Requires Just A Few Tools:

  • Ratchet wrench with a 10 mm socket
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Clip remover tool or small flathead screwdriver

In addition to the above tools, it's a good idea to have blue masking tape. This will help prevent chips or scratches in the paint surrounding the grille opening. You'll also want a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth to clean up the grille once it's installed.

Installation Steps

  1. Remove the radiator cover clips and the radiator support cover. There are a total of 13 clips that can be removed by pressing down on the tabs. Hang on to the clips because you'll reuse them when installing the new grille.
  2. Remove the two clips and one bolt attaching the grille. Then carefully pull the grille out to remove it. Before this step, it's a good idea to apply masking tape to the paint surrounding the grille.
  3. Remove the grille parts out of the bracket. There are four Phillips screws holding the bracket and six holding the grille housing. Keep all of these parts to reuse with the new grille.
  4. Reassemble the grill parts and bracket to the new grille.
  5. Remove the adhesive strips on the garnish. Then line up the two center marks and slide the garnish on. Apply minimum pressure to attach the garnish and crimp it to the front bumper. 
  6. Install the new grille to the front bumper by clicking it in place. Then secure the upper end of the grill with the clips.
  7. Replace the radiator support cover, securing it with the 13 clips.
  8. Stand back and admire your new grille!
