Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To remove the grille there are four push clips on the top. Use a flat bladed screwdriver to pry them up and unlock them. Both sides. Use a trim clip tool. Kind of pry on them a bit sometimes they take a little bit of force to get them to unclip. There are two clips on either side of the grille. They’re kind of hidden. You can get to them. You’d access the clips through here to release them on either side. Ours are broken. They actually clip through the headlights so without those in place there's the bottom of the grille clips to the top of the bumper. Just kind of slide it out. You may need to slide a screwdriver in there and just push the lock tabs in. But this one's pretty loose, so it came right out.

These are the clips and brackets that are supposed to be mounted to the back of our grille. It's broken on both sides, but they would clip into here. The headlights on both sides to help hold the grille in. You don't 100% need them but if you have yours you can clip them back in. These clips on the bottom of the grille are going to go underneath this lip. Push it down like that. Slide it up under that lip into place. And put the push clips back in place. Grille is back in place.
