Hi all, just bought a 308 2011 e-hdi. On way home hit a pheasant. Grille is broken and plastic snapped off it everwhere.

1. Where can I get a replacement grille?
2. I assume I have to remove the bumper, any advice here?
3. Is the grille different on a late 61 than an early one?
4. Part number?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Thanks for that. That looks like it only goes up to the old '11. I think we have the newer one, but can't be sure. It's also silver, the original one is black.

Not sure what you mean about the 'Puggy service box'?

Thanks.

I have just finished replacing the broken grille on my wife’s Peugeot 308 (09 reg) wiuth the help of a YouTube video in Russian ….
…not that I could understand what they were saying but at least you can follow what they are doing.
If attempting this, allow a good three hours which is what it took me as there are many bolts to undo and a knack of pushing and pulling fragile plastic lugs. Take your time.
Removal can be done without putting car on ramps as you will need to put the wheels on full lock to get at the wheel-arch liners.
Firstly, undo the various screws on the plastic tray underneath the engine which connect to the front bumper skirt. There are three main bolts with washers which are located half way back, one central and one each side.
Secondly, put the steering on full lock to give you access to the wheel-arch liner for each front wheel. Pull the wheel-arch liner back to reveal a 10mm bolt where the bumper meets the wing of the car. You will need a ratchet with a swivel knuckle and 10mm socket to get onto the bolt head. Undo the bolt and repeat on the other side.
Lift the bonnet and at the front edge you will see four black flat circles. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, lever up the centre and you can then lift up with your finger which releases the retaining plastic bolts.
Looking at the top of the panted front bumper where it attached to the front of the engine compartment, you will see several small slots along the width of the plastic which you can place a small flat bladed screwdriver into and push down gently whilst pulling the front panel forwards in a rocking motion to release the plastic lugs. The whole bumper assembly should then start disconnecting from the car. It is helpful to have a second person to gentle prise away the wheel-arch sections from the car body. The whole front bumper section should then fall away but be careful as the wiring for the front fog lights will still be attached. Take hold of the lamp holders and turn through 90 degrees to remove the bayonet fittings. Pull the bumper assembly clear of the car and place on a fabric cloth/mat to avoid scratching the paintwork.
Re-fitting is a reverse of the above.
