Hi guys im wondering if anyone who has a 2006 facelift model would be able to post a picture of the front and back of the radiator grill.
I put my car into the garage for rear shockers and they snapped the bolt, so while waiting for new ones to be delivered i asked them to fit a passenger side headlight assembly for me.
went to get the car back and it looks like part of the grill is missing, there is a gap under the citroen logo where you can see the radiator.
im certain it was there before i took it in but they are telling me they dont know what im talking about and its normal.
i have searched the net and found a piture that looks like its there but i cant see the back or how its actually connected to the grill
ive attatched a picture of the piece i think is missing.
thanks

Here is a picture of the back. Hope that's what you are after.
There are usually 2 parts to the grill. A body coloured front bit and a black, back grill.
You can see both parts here.

Hi m8 yeah thats exactly what i was after and what i thought it was tbh.
does the black rear part disconnect from the body coloured part? if it does i might be able to get the rear piece from my local scrappy rather than pay for the full part new and have to spray it

For the most part it should unclip. However you may find there are a few tabs that have been melted over for security.
It depends how the guys in the factory melted them. Some are more difficult to cut off than others. But it's not hard.
