If you are asking how to get the grill off, just put all your fingers in between the slots, hold firmly and pull.
You should pull the lower section out firmly and smoothly. With abit of gentle forcem it should just pop out.

Dont know about the bumper though.

If you are talking about the black plastic mesh like grille, then what I said is correct, 3 screws (#18 in pic), have a look...

Holy 2008 thread revival batman!

No, it only takes 15 minutes to remove the bumper. Here is a DIY by 30yrVeteran. Download the .pdf for the DIY.
