Grill badge replacement

Postby Ramses100 » Sat Oct 19, 2019 6:48 am

Hi guys,

Does anyone know how to or have experience with replacing the badge on the grill?

The badge on my grill has gone missing. The black surround is still there but the emblem itself (which should be the daimler D) is gone. I was thinking this might be the correct replacement :

Yet I am uncertain given how complex this looks and isn't a simple round badge. So maybe there is some intricate removal / mounting required?

Regards,

Ramses

Easy job, correct part number is BEC14085, still available new...

I only have Jaguar parts/cars at hand at the moment, but seem to remember the Daimler badge is fitted from below?
In that case I would recommend grille removal: a much easier job with the grille off the car.

Here's the exploded view from JCP: https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.co ... nd/jaguar/
And here's a link to the part page on JCP: https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.co ... 8823754346

Grille removal procedure:
Step1: get the two grille vanes out. Each is held in place by two tiny Phillips screws. Look up and you will see them. You will also be disappointed finding out that those vanes are plastic... :D
Step 2: you now have access to the grille bolts, two each side. Heads are behind the grille and are 8 or 10mm from memory. A ratchet spanner is ideal for this!
Step 3: take the grille off, you can now access the pin and clip that hold the badge in place (for a Jag) or refit the 'D' emblem (for a Daimler).

I have taken some pictures of a spare Jaguar grille I had in the parts shed.
Removal is identical to a Daimler grille, it's just the badge fitment that differs:

Grille seen from the lower end up: this nylon thingy holds the vane screw in place. Two screws per vane, so 4 in total.

Back side of the grille: these nylon plugs hold the grille fitting screws, two each side:

Back side top of the grille: you can see the silhouette of the badge as well as the fixing pin:

Just to add to Pim’s comprehensive post ;) this is the rear of the Daimler grille badge aperture which shows the holding clips, as you can see one is snapped off on this one. Hope this helps 8-)

With your pic added this makes for a nice brand-agnostic "how to overhaul your grille", Don!
