Does anyone know if the front grill is "easily" removed from my '17 S? It appears to be a separate piece from the rest of the bumper. I'm a volunteer EMT and would like to tuck a few blue lights behind the grill. Thanks!

I may be incorrect , but aren't "Blue Lights" facing the front of ANY private vehicle ILLEGAL ?

It depends on the individual state law...they are very common on volunteer firefighter and EMT personal vehicles. But each state has different laws so in your state they may be illegal.

I think the OP is asking about the removal of the grill, not the legality of installing lights behind it.
I was merely trying to save him the aggravation of removing the Grill , if it is considered illegal wherever he lives , to have Blue Lights behind it ! I know , I know theweeb , you would have torn it all apart and put the lights on , only to find out later that you had to remove them ! So , knowing there are people in this world like you that would do such a thing , I was just trying to make sure things got looked into , before hand !
My apologies , Your Highness !

Were it me I'd have a dealer do it for you. With auto start/stop the wiring can be a little tricky.

Hey jmichael ! You might want to check with theRAMSTA ! Because he posted pictures of his Rhodium Silver FE F-Pace with a White Tube Light behind the Grill ! He is a *MOD* Specialist ! ;)

Front grille does not come off without removing the entire front bumper piece.

Plan B

Thank you for the replies. I am legal in NJ (actually have a red light and siren permit). Taking the whole bumper off is a bit more than I'd like to tackle...time for Plan B, as soon as I figure out what that is...

For "Plan B" how about putting Blue Lights down where the Fog Lights go ???

Open the bonnet and remove the first two screws left and right of centre as you look at top of bumper.
There are more of these holding plastic bumper on. You don’t need to do anything with them.
I bent ‘two’ pieces of flat malleable metal/alluminium 8”x 1” x 3/16” then drilled a clearance hole 1/2“ from one end to screw them on flat with the two aforementioned screws 90’ to the bumper rail running from wheel to wheel then hand bent the metal down behind the grill. Satisfied all was clear of obstruction and correct length, cut another piece of metal to join the two tails together at opposite ends horizontally and made a frame to attach my red/blue flashing lights to behind the grill......Walla....wired and working, closed the bonnet and drove off to scare unsuspecting idiots. No need for removal of anything but two small screws. Sounds a bit makeshift, but hey...no one sees it behind the grill..simples !
I am not an engineer but this works perfectly for me.
good luck...Francis Fullerfrogs...Self Unemployed International Offshore Carpet Fitter & Golfball Cleaner to the Stars.
