I thought I would share this with people as I was stumped on how to remove these. If you are lucky enough to have the original tool kit I have been told that there is a designated tool for this.
Firstly remove there screws along the top of the grill, one left one right and one centre.

4505
Then there are two more screw lower down on the left and right sort of behind the grill. On mine which had a after market grill they was behind
4506
Now that all the fixing are out now comes the tricky bit. On either end of the front panel is a small gap between the front wing
4507
This is where the panel clips in, one top one bottom, if you have the tool you have to slide it in between and hook the lip of the tool onto the front panel. Now you need to give this a good yank, and I mean good but be carful not to fall over like I neally did. The panel should come away from the pins. Now repeat this on the other side.
Tip put a bungy strap around the front end of the van to stop the panel and grill flying on the floor.

There we go folks took me a while but hope this helps others. If you don't have a tool, like me make one out of a couple of metal coat hangers with a small bend on the end. Be carful not to scratch the paint tho.

Don't suppose anyone knows how to get the upper grill out the bonnet do they? The windscreen washer grill? Bloody thing.

Screws and then tabs - try prising it gently from the bottom edge... If it breaks it ain't my fault! 😁
