Chrysler 300 Grille Installation

Grill installation and fascia removal 101
Greetings! I know there are a few tutorials on the site regarding installing the grill, but I could never find a good "illustrated" version. I read about people installing their grills without removing the fascia and others that found it easier to just pull the fascia to install a new grill (and foglight bulbs). Well, I tried it both ways and here is my pain documented in pictures for all to see. This was on a 2006 300C SRT8, so I can't guarantee it is the same on other years or models. Some light commentary along the way:

First, there are two plastic snap-in covers on the top right behind the fascia.....read more

"don't take off the whole bumper. Two easier ways to do it, turn wheel so that you can reach into fender by removing the 3 rivets. The use a long socket to remove the nut. Or jack up the car and remove the 10 bolts holding the plastic piece at the bottom giving u perfect access"

Chrysler 300 Pillar Post

How To Remove A Pillar Post Trim

Option 1
If you plan to remove the Door Pillar Post, my suggestion is to first use a strong Fish Line to slide between the installed Pillars and your door pillars. Start sliding from the top, using both hands from left to right and then moving downwards like using a hand saw. Once you finish removing the Stainless Pillars, simply dab some Goof Off Adhesive Remover onto the adhesive residue. Let it sit for approximately 5 minutes, then use a spat to remove adhesive residue. Repeat 2-3 times until desired result. Clean surface with Rubbing Alcohol and then Wash your car

Option 2
Try heating the Pillar Post with a Heat Gun** or Blow Dryer to loosen the adhesive, side a Fish line in between the Stainless Pillar and the Pillar Post of vehicle. Once removed, dap Goof Off with a cloth to the adhesive residue, let it stand for a couple of minutes, then remove with a spatula or paper towel. Repeat a couple of times until the adhesive is totally removed

Option 3 - No heat required
Try using a dental floss. Start by carefully sliding it back and forth, until the emblem comes off.
Again, dab some adhesive remover, clean, wax and then shine

Good Luck!

Tools Required: Latex Glove, Fish Line*, Windex, Rubbing Alcohol, Goof Off*, Spatula, Eye Protector

* Available at Walmart or your favorite Handy Store
** Use Heat Gun with caution. Do not overheat, Just hot enough to loosen the adhesive

Installing B Pillar Post Trims
Start by cleaning the existing pillar post areas extensively with rubbing compound or rubbing alcohol, test fit to make sure the trim fits*, peel off the backing from the pre-applied 3M double sided tape, press towards the body of vehicle, and you're done! Your Chrome Plated Pillar Post Trims trims are specific-cut to fit your Chrysler 300 and 300C exactly - No cutting, drilling or additional tools required

*Most Pillar Post Trims are pre labeled - Test fit all parts before installation
How to Install the Pillar Post
  • Remove all Pillar Post from Shipping package and inspect individually for damage or bend. Next, test fit each individual piece to make they fit
  • Clean the B Pillar Post section of airborne dust or other elements. Make sure the vehicle and trim temperature is above 65 degrees (avoid temperatures below 65 degrees). Clean work area with 3M adhesive cleaner or equivalent, or rubbing alcohol
  • Ready to Peel and Stick on: Remove the entire red liner just before installing. Protect exposed tape from dust or other debris
  • Hold the Pillar Post piece at a 90 degree angle to the vehicle, and touch the very top edge to the vehicle, observing your placement and alignment guides. If you need to adjust placement, simply raise the piece past 90 degrees and lift off
  • Once you get the placement right press down across the top of the piece to tack it in place. Complete installation by pressing down across the Pillar Post piece, moving from top to bottom. (Caution: Once the tape adheres to your vehicle , the trim cannot be removed without causing wrinkles)
  • Next, apply pressure over entire surface including edges with a clean soft cloth to ensure that the tape completely adheres to the vehicle. Check your edges and re-apply pressure when necessary
  • Lastly, remove white protective covering.
* You may use any non abrasive steel cleaner to keep your trim shining bright!
