Easy.... first remove the 4 pieces of engine cover, then remove the trim below that is held in with 5? Torx screws. With all of this off you can get your hand down behind the grill and gently press down on the clips while gently pulling the grill with your other hand. With the main grill out the lower middle is a doddle. Hope this helps

From what I can gather, you can either take front bumper off then pop the clips out or take out the middle lowet grill, get your arm up in the gap and pop the clips out that way (obviously not going to be easy if you have a FMIC)

The clips can be a bitch to remove if your going in from the top I chose the all or nothing approach and just pulled the grill really hard and all the clips popped off at once :?: I don't advise this as I thought I was going to pull the bumper off but all checked and no damage so worked for me ;)

Hi, Remove lower offside grill, hand in & remove centre lower grill, arm up inside & unclip the clips along the top, pull grill out & up & spring clips along the bottom will pop off, no need to replace them. New grill will just pop into place.
Thats how I removed mine with no damage to any clips, only scratched fore arms.
