I'm think you have to take the radiator out along with the plastic piece (you can unhook the plastic piece from the radiator but there won't be enough room to pull it out unless the radiator is taken out)
to remove the plastic piece from the radiator there are two plastic "rivets" that hold it to the radiator. There are located at the top in each corner of the plastic piece. Each "rivet" has two peices--there's a little plastic pin in the center of the "rivet" that must be pulled out first to allow the rest of it to come out--once those two rivets are out then the plastice piece is now separated. There are two slots at the bottom of the radiator that the plastic piece rests in--and upward pull will take it out of those.
but like I said, I couldn't get it out with out removing the radiator along with it....but you can try if you want...good luck!
