          Will it snap though? and see the little Black screw type thing when you lift the bonnet can i take them out with a screw driver because you can't take them out a drill?

                  Undo the torx screws on the top of the grill (under the bonnet) and then pull gently on the whole grill to unclip the bottom (out of the bumper), turn the grill over and you will see the coloured clips on the back gently push them and you will see it move forward and then free the V part off.

                  Hope this makes sense and helps mate

                  P.S sorry just looked at the pics ours had torx screws instead. You will probably butcher the rivets but then it is pretty much the same as above. You can either get some more plastic rivets (like whats fitted) or get some torque screws with little nuts and fit them that way (makes like easier if you wanted to take it off again)

                        There not rivets mate there plastic clips with central inserts. All you do is push the middle bits through so the clip is hollow and the pop them up with a screw driver, once there all of the grill should lift up and off.

                        When you push the bits through try and do it slowly so you can find them again as you will need to pop the inserts back in. Failing that they will still clip in with out the centres and new clips are pennies from vx.
