How is this done? Ive heard of people doing it, I read a thread where a guy said "you can remove them by sticking your hand up there, ugh WUT???, any videos or illustrations of this?
I don't think the shutters will come out without removing the bunper, and if they do I can't see how it would be quicker than removing the bumper. Bumper is really easy to take off
thanks guys. Ill just wait untill i get an intercooler
I think I remember reading someone was able to remove the individual slats to the Active Grille Shutter (AGS) without removing the front bumper? Highly doubt it was the entire unit though, but individual slats maybe. I believe he found a slat was stuck closed since it broke off from the rest of the louver system?
Another option, until you replace the OEM intercooler, is to pull the AGS fuse when it's 100% open so it stays in that position at all times. If I remember, the shutters open 100% when the car is off and the fuse is #35? I'd double check that, but it's something to explore.
The fuse pull, at least on a 2016, sets the check engine light. I tried it.
