Just take of the black engine/rad covers 3 (6 screw/push pins), the two grill push pins on top, the 4 push pins above the h light on fascia, release the grill from fascia (just hooks in at top at top of h light), pull top of grill away from car and reach down on both inner sides of grill and remove push pins (two on each side) then pull the grill out at top as before and release about 6 clips across the bottom of grill (you'll only need press down and push on the center of them to release) once all are release from fascia the grill should pull right out.
Good Luck!

Just a note...
I also painted the battleship grey fascia under the rear bumper black, really looks great!
I would however do that on car, removal is a pain and it's easy enough to cover the tailpipes and tape off. I would also tape an old sheet above the work area to prevent over spray.
There are only 5 push pins holding the bottom on, but the edge along the top snaps in, and let me tell you, it's going to conjure up every bad word you know getting it on and off. Ask me how I know? :bonkers:
Cheers!
