This is for a 2005-there may be a slight difference in mounting.
1) Open the hood and remove the plastic cover from the rad support. This is done by backing out the plastic Phillips head screws and carefully prying out the plastic clips.

2) remove the bolts that hold the two straps from the top of the grille to the rad support.

3) There are two tabs that come out of the bottom of the grille (center) and snap into slots on the bumper cover. Lift the end of these up to release them.

4) Pull the bottom of the grille forward to and its out. You can do this in about 20 minutes.
