You pretty much have to disassemble the entire front end of your car. It's gonna be a ton of work. It took me about 5 hours to properly install the mesh grille in mine, and you don't even need to take the original grille out for that, you just have to get access to the back of it, so make sure you know what your getting into before you start taking everything apart.

If you only unbolt the chin spoiler do you have access to the back of the bottom grill mesh? I'm wanting to install a remote radar detector head and this seems like the only easy option.

I just had my entire front bumper removed by the dealer to replace a grille surround that had raised spots in it when purchased new. The tech got the entire bumper off in one piece in one hour but I am not sure if the average guy could do this so fast. Once they got it apart they realized they did not have the proper plastic rivets to fasten the grille surround as delivered from the factory so the car had to sit in the body shop for the weekend and the dealer bought me a rental car. I was happy with their work. They were super careful not to scratch anything.

I was at Chrysler Carlisle last weekend and one of the venders had a Challenger grill assembly hanging up that was for sale. It was a very complicated looking piece. When I looked at it I was thinking about how I really wouldn't want to have to change one out.
