replacing the roundel on the front bumper

Looking for advice on getting the old one off and replacing with a new one. I have purchased the new roundel and the 2 nuts. Thank you in advance for any advice on the do's and do not.

I think i heard people remove the grills and then access the nuts on the roundal from through the gap where the grill was. May be wrong as i've never tried.

That's what I did. You only need to remove 1 grill strictly speaking. And there's a couple of nuts to undo

The nuts can be a bit tight but it's possible to remove them with your fingers, although a socket helps
