How hard is it to replace the rear bumper mesh diffuser? Does it require the bumper coming off? Does anyone have instructions?

Also if anyone has one or knows of a good place to get one cheaper than the dealer, I could also use that information.

Thanks

Did You find this meshed insert separately from rear bumper? As I see at parts catalog this part is included with the rear bumper fascia.
If Yes, how much your dealer want for it? I also need it.

I was looking for the rear mesh that matched the custom front grill of E&G and I didnt find it on their web page.

Are you talking about the mesh that comes on the V-series like this?

Dealer shows it as "Insert - 2008-11 Sts-v - 2008-11 Sts-v" for $281.19... Doesn't give me a part number though...



Not sure it's gonna fit either. The rear bumper is different on the V than the regular sts. The lower portion is slightly different, so I wouldn't order it unless you sure it fits. You can see it in the plastic from the exhaust tips to the insert on the V is closer together, meaning the opening is wider...
