Welcome to the forum! :)
Have a read of this thread (http://www.mini2.com/forum/first-generation-mini-exterior/157248-aero-grill-removal.html), see if that answers your query.

If it like the standard grille the metal nuts holding the upper grille to the bonnet are self-threading onto the grille plastic pillars/studs. When undoing them you often have to help them off with a flat screwdriver behind the nut while undoing with a spanner or socket. Place a blanket over the engine as you are bound to drop some and it stops the nuts disappearing into the engine bay never to be seen again............
