66 Eldorado Grille Removal

Hello Cadillac Enthusiasts,

I am trying to remove my 66 Eldorado's grille, but have absolutely no clue where to start. Should I, someone with little to no experience working on cars, take in to a body shop or is it fairly easy to remove? I really want to complete this project myself, but will pass if it is out of my league. I want to make sure she remain beautiful....


If you can change a tire. You "should" be able to remove your grill. Easiest to do by dropping the full front bumper as a assembly

Now bout those wheels
Buy the shop manual if you have not already. It has thorough instructions on how to remove. Take your time, take pictures, and be careful. This is a great place to start for a person without much experience. You will find it rewarding.
I'm a little embarrassed to say that I already have the shop manual. I don't think they took into account that a rookie like me would try to use it. Blugg, I was hoping to do the crawl, walk, run approach...removing the bumper seems like a 100 yard dash. LOL! I was hoping to get easier instructions, but I'll read the manual once more. Appreciate it, guys!
It's a bit intimidating if your not warmed up to a wrench. I couldn't figure out how the brill came off by itself an dropped the whole grill & full front bumper assy (with helper cause heavy). Then getting the grill off the full assy made moar sense an simple. All hardware that was concealed when ´ŞĆInstalled was exposed when assy removed.
