The part that holds the grills in place is slightly bent. Assuming I need to replace this piece how do you get at the bolts to remove/ install? Does the bumper need to be taken off to reveal the bolts or do you access them through under the hood?

Also the hood is pushed up about a quarter inch- just enough to make it so it isnt flush. If i were to replace the hood would the new one bolt on and perfectly line up?

If you mean the front kidney grills they aren't bolted in they are in 2 bits the back inner knocks out of the chrome out so to get them out just hit the centre of the grill and it will full apart to fit the new one make sure itís the right way round then put the black inner inside the front panel put the chrome out in the hole and clip them together as for fitting the bonnet youíll properly have to align it but that not hard just be very careful the first time you shut it then adjust it at the hinges catches and stops.
Hope this heps
