    I want to change my front grill on a 2015 W205. I’ve seen a video on YouTube showing a guy changing the grills over without taking the front bumper off.
    Has anyone managed to do this?

    I too watched that video & don't know how he managed it. Even after removing the bumper the grill is still hard to remove as the plastic clips holding it in place are extremely stiff & much prying with screwdrivers is required. It makes it a lot easier to remove the bumper which took me about 20 minutes, so not that big a deal.
