*Potentially Stupid Question* How to Put in My Lower Center Grille?

Well... License plate is kinda in the way, I just can't seem to angle it correctly, but looking online saw that the only way to remove the whole thing is drill out rivets, or something. (which I guess leave holes in the bumper?)

Yeah. So anybody know a different way to put it in, I don't feel like messing anything up.

Ok, I FINALLY got it... Damn. Just needed a little more strength I guess, I punched the side that wouldn't work and it clipped in. Lol.

When I bought my car, it didn't have the center lower grill under the license plate, but I didn't realize it until a few weeks ago when I took it into the collision center.

Don't forget to straighten out your license plate bracket. It will move a little on the rivets.
