I'll get around to installing this badboi into my car in the next few weeks, probably.
Thanks all for the quick helpful responses! To anybody arriving to this thread in the future, please wear hearing protection while installing the chrome wings, they snap into the grille with some force and vigor.
What is this electrical connector for? Based on the posted link to @jostafew 's grill removal info, it's clipped onto a tang. Does the wiring just happen to run across the grill and this tang just holds it in place to prevent flopping?Be aware, the Opel grill doesnt have a hole to hold the electrical connecter that attaches behind the grill. You can probably drill one to match, but i just used some duck tape to hold it in the same area. Not sure it was necessary, but i didnt want the plastic connector rattling around unattached.
Trade Grills?Anybody want to trade their black 'grill' for my gray 'grill'? We have a black BEV and it came with the gray grill. I'm thinking black would look better.www.chevybolt.org
Makes me want to expedite the process for myself! Looks real nice.Part numbers were perfect. Installed my new grill tonight.
Looks like it needs a bath though.
thank you ClaudiaJ!

the wiring just runs across behind the entire bumper/grill area and the tang sticking off the grill merely secures the wiring connector in the middle so it doesnt flop. I tried to follow it to see what the wire was for. It runs to both sides of the vehicle, but I didnt see what it connected to. Not sure why the Bolt and Ampera-e would be designed differently, so not sure exactly what the wire is for.What is this electrical connector for?

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it yet, but I figure I could part with it to someone in need! Being a whole pandemic, my original grille still has fewer than 400 miles of wind-wear on it, just imagine how few bug guts it's actually seen in its short life! 😜Hey ClaudiaJ,
I was directed to this thread when I asked if anyone has a used front plastic grill in good condition that they want to sell... do you plan on keeping yours? If not drop me a PM about possible purchase by me.
PS: This thread has inspired me to ask my wife if she would prefer the opel grill... I didn't realize how much better it looks than ours until now
Are those silver?Wheel center cap logo (Opel logo): 42475132
