Someone backed into my Type R the other day. I tried my best at touch up painting the bumper (not shown) but the black grill is cracked. What’s the easiest ways of repairing this? Is it possible to just get the front grill replaced?

Do you have to take the entire bumper off to replace the grill?
if the R bumper has the same clip points as the Si its not that hard at all man. just be gentle

That stinks, I'm sorry to hear that happened. You have to take the entire bumper off to replace the grill. There are some good videos on how to do that. Here is a good one.
I just took mine off to vinyl wrap it and it is not big deal. You do need to get the car up on jacks or a lift because the clearance is very small.

thanks for the video. I’m going to work on replacing the grill. I can live with the bumper and cover up paint, but the crack is already driving me nuts.
