When you hear the word grille, you most likely think of the decorative element at the nose of your Toyota vehicle. While that's the most prominent type of grille, there are others that may be hiding in plain sight.
The front grille that you already know is responsible for allowing air to flow and circulate under the hood. That helps cool both the radiator and the engine. In addition, it serves as a shield that protects them from flying roadside debris.
Then there are the cowl screens on your hood, which ventilate the passenger space. Wheel grilles, on the other hand, help cool the brake system as they create heat. Finally, a rear deck lid grille is common on vehicles that have the engine located in the back.
Choose the Best Grille for Your Toyota Model
It's not unheard of for a grille to wind up taking some damage. That's even more likely for both front grilles and wheel grilles, since they're exposed to more objects being flung about. If yours gets too damaged, it may not offer the ventilation and cooling that your Toyota needs. Replacing a worn-out grille with a new one made by your OEM is the smart choice. They are, after all, the only ones that are guaranteed to fit your vehicle and protect it best. Our online auto parts center has plenty in stock and ready to ship, so order today and save!
