Looking for guidance on an OEM replacement grill for my 2012 Chrysler SRT8 w/ vapor chrome package.

Parked at the post office yesterday and went inside. Upon returning, I found that someone had backed their vehicle into the front grill area of my car. There's a crack in the grill. See photo. Haven't had a chance to fully inspect yet, so not sure if that's the only damage.

A few questions:

1- Does anyone know the cost and/or part number for an OEM grill?

2- What does DIY removal/replacement entail?

3- Are there any indicators of other/hidden damage I should look for?

Thanks in advance.

Daniel

Best of luck with that. If you end up having to discard this grille, I'd be interested in buying the grille insert from you!

1.) Part # 1SF04SZRAA. $515 list from the dealer. $369.05 from wholesalemopar.com

2.) To easily remove it would entail removing the entire front bumper cover. You MAY be able to do it with it on, but I wouldn't want that headache. Its held in with plastic clips and 2 screws on the upper portion of it.

3.) Normally when someone backs into you, there a fine hairline cracks in the clear coat that are sometimes hard to see. You may want to look close at the surrounding area. Other than that, nothing hidden I wouldn't suspect.

People that do this (hit & run):pat: should be made to walk everywhere for at least one year. No bicycles either, they would probably run into sh!t with that too.

Good info...thanks! Also found the spider-like cracks in the clear coat / paint surface that you mentioned. Will definitely need the services of a professional. I obtained two estimates. Each was over $1,000 (USD). Interestingly, each body shop cited part number 68155788AA for the grille.
