Grille removal on 2003 V6

Hi Everyone -
First time post and I need some help. Just bought an '03 V6 with one minor flaw. The horse was ripped out of the grille and I have bought a replacement grille.

Question: How the heck do you access the 4 screws at the bottom of the grille? Does the whole nose need to come off....? Seems like the screws go through the nose. The screws seem to be blocked by the foam(?) piece that sits in the bumper......

Thanks in advance! Got many more pages to check out.

you CAN remove the 4 bolts with out removing the front bumper or slightly pulling it put but its much easier to.
