    Hello,

    I recently upgraded my Prius Prime Premium to a Prius Prime Advance, and I am loving it with all of the extra features you get with this package. Unfortunately, a week after I bought someone hit my front grille and put a hole in it.

    I can submit it to my insurance, but my deductible is 1000.00 more than it would cost to repair it. So I have decided to do it myself, but unfortunately, I have not found proper details instructions to go through the entire process of replacing it, the Toyota website where I bought the Grille does have instructions but after following them it appears there are more components that need to be removed such as the headlights, etc. before removing the Grille.

    Also, I have looked on YouTube videos but no luck as the only videos I was able to find where for the regular Prius, does anybody know where I can get complete instructions of what needs to be taken apart so I can proceed with the replacement?

    Thanks in advance,

    Welcome to the forum, Pedro. I have a suggestion that doesn't concern your car. You probably should change your avatar to remove your home address. Just a city and state is more than enough.

    Completed the job over the weekend, saved me $400 quoted by my local body shop.

    Thanks, again Salamander_king

    Did you ended up replacing entire grill sub-assembly (part #53101 in the diagram both acrylic fascia and black grill together)? Or could you just replace the acrylic part of the grill sub-assembly (shown in the diagram below with the orange arrow)? I have a crack on the acrylic fascia just like yours, but since you can't buy just the acrylic part separately, I have not touched it yet.

    on my 2020 prius prime, it was necessary to remove the entire front bumper, grill, fenders etc per this video even though the video is for an older prius. Pretty sure that there is no way to replace the grill without doing so.
