I'm guessing you mean the transmission cooler? I've got the Hellas installed, and only had to unbolt the top bracket and bend the cooler back a little, maybe half an inch. But the Hellas are pretty slim lights, really. What wattage are the lights you have? That will make a difference on whether or not you need to worry about melting the grill. Mine are 55w each, and I've had no problems with them at all wrt heat.
