Default Installing Opel Astra H grill on a 2008 Saturn Astra XR

I have searched for at least 1 hour looking for the post that I came across some time ago. There was a short write up from a member who installed an Opel Astra H grill on his 2008 Astra XR. He had to make some of the slots a little longer because of the tabs and spacing. I think he used a dremel tool. Can someone link me to that post please? My grill will be here soon and I wanted to post to his thread with pics of my Opel grill install. Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you get the proper grill (5 door facelift grill - 7 tabs on the bottom) then there is no need to modify anything, just take out the top 3 screws and un clip the bottom, do in reverse with the new grill.

If you managed to get a 3dr grill with 6 tabs then you will need to enlarge the holes where the tabs sit in on the bottom which can be done with a dremel or a small file. Hope this helps you

Default Re: Installing Opel Astra H grill on a 2008 Saturn Astra XR

Hi all,

I posted this twice, sorry. Kwattro, Nicolas_p is right, it's a very easy installation and no fussing or messing required. I even posted how I did it somewhere in this forum. I just need some help, I want to do the same on my daughter's 3dr, but I forgot to note the part number. I believe it is 13225780, can someone please confirm?

...
Kind Regards,
