The front grille on the Volvo C30 is held in place with a series of snap locks that must be pressed in to release the grille from the body. This article focuses on the steps involved with removing it.

You'll want to pick up a set of plastic pry bars to do the job. These allow you to release the clips without damaging the bumper or paintwork.

The front grille on the C30 is held in place with ten snap locks around the perimeter of the grille opening (green arrows).
