Help Please - Grille Badge Installation tips?

HELP PLEASE! I just tried to install my new grille badge last night, and I couldn't figure out how to get behind the honeycomb grille. There's a little space on the driver's side of the grille that I can barely squeeze my hand behind, but I was hoping to put the badge on the right side of the grille. Can anyone please give me instructions, tips, or a link to another thread that could help me out with this? Is there an easy way to remove the grille itself, install the badge, and then re-install the grille? THANKS!

You have to get the grill off mate. There are 4 pin things on the top of the grill - if you get a flat head screw driver you can easily prize these out. them you have to get the chrome cover off - there are two long bits of plastic on either end of the grill at the back. push these down and the chrome should slide off. Then, there is 4 connectors - you have to push these towards the centre of the grill and pull it off.

sorry if its abit long winded - didnt know how to word it. hope it helps!
