    yeah thought as much
    i wanted to take it off anyway to check over a few things at the front end
    and hopefully spray the top of the bonnet latch part .(see pic )

    but i noticed the clips on the replacement ones and just thought i could whack them on without removing the bumper

    Definitely bumper off. When I did this I found that several of the lugs on the back of the original grilles had been melted for security. Getting them off was a right pain. Getting the new grilles on needed some trimming of the new lugs with a Stanley knife too.
    Makes a great difference to the look at the front though, so well worth it.
