MK5 grill clips

Postby barryorbik » Tue Jul 14, 2020 12:58 pm

Does anyone have four of the oblong plastic clips that the ends of a Smilie grill locate in, or a part number for them.

Tried Google and E Bay but cannot find anything similar on there.

Oblong plastic clips??

There are 4 plastic "tangs" moulded in to the grille assembly. A metal spring clip fits over these, and it then gets pushed in to the appropriate slots in the front wings

Thanks for taking the time to reply Matt,

I took my grill off yesterday and it has all of the tangs and metal clips in place, but the ends are very loose fitting, so I assumed it needed plastic inserts in the wing cut outs.

May see if plastic grommet strip helps to take up the slack.

Best regards

The clips have probably corroded and become less springy...
