One of the most popular auto customizations is aftermarket grille replacement. The Ford Ranger has a simple grille design that makes removing the old grille and installing a new one very easy even for non-professionals. Learn how to quickly and safely remove the grille on your Ford Ranger, whether it is damaged or you are looking to upgrade to an aftermarket grille.

Step 1

Park your Ranger on level ground and pop the hood.

Step 2

Remove the two screws from the plastic cover on top of the grille. Remove the two screws on each side that connect the grille to each headlight assembly.

Step 3

Remove the other two screws connected the sides of the grille to the headlight assembly. These screws are accessed from in front of the grille.
