Bump - Mine got smacked on the freeway today and shattered, so I need to replace it - ideally without taking the entire bumper off. Is there a way?

No you have to remove the bumper and gently pry the grille out.

I was able to remove mine with the bumper on. Reinstalling was a little difficult, but was able to do it.

Here are the photos of the clips and where they are located on the front bumper. I was able to do this with bumper on. The side taps are very hard to reach though.

My stock bumper is hanging up in the garage, so grabbed a couple of pics from the backside with the grill still installed...
