    Does one really need to remove the front bumper cover? It appears that three screws and a couple of slots in the grille are all that is holding the grille in place.

Welcome to FIxYa.com


Remove the three 10mm bolts on top. You then need to realease the three clips on the grill. You can do this by pushing down on the bumper with your left hand and gently pulling the grill off with your right hand.

Front grill on toyota solara


think so. Open the hood, and observe the top of the grille. There should be 3 bolts; remove them, the grill should slide up & out, there should be locater tabs at the bottom of the grille to fit in 2 holes when you put the new one in.
