I have the same CLK grille in my garage waiting to be thrown on my R170. I can't seem to find instructions on the 'net anywhere though, it definitely requires modification to make it work. I did find it in German (I think?) here, I guess someone could be a rockstar and translate it to English... until then, I'm doomed to live with a busted grille

Edit: Here are the German(?) instructions

You could try this - here's a instructional page in German:
http://www.mb-treff.de/anleitungen/r...rill/index.php

Use this link for a webpage translator:
http://babelfish.yahoo.com/

Which gets you:
http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate...rUrl=Translate

This may give you enough info between the two to figure it out. This is something I'd like to try one of these days.

Its a doddle to fit. Don't worry about cutting the bumper in the german instructions, you dont need to.

Simply cut off the two plastic knobs either end, put the L shaped brackets on, cut off as much plastic on the bottom edge and corners and you need to take alot of plastic out (about half a 5" circle) above the star on the top edge so the bonnet can close and you can get to the catch.

The first one took me an hour of fettling, (easy to take the plastic off on a bench grinder, hard work with a saw). The second one took me like 10 minutes.
