The above picture was my grill before, and here is how it looks crushed. So I would like to replace it, repairing it myself.

Open the hood. Look for the clips or fasteners which hold it on. Remove broken one and install is reverse of removal.

1. Install the grille (2) to the hood (3). Caution! Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems. 2. Install the nuts (1) in order to retain the grille to the hood (3). Tighten Tighten the nuts to 9 N·m (80 lb in). 3. Install the push pins to the grille support brace. end
