I think there'* 4 bolts under the hood to remove it, it'* real simple. Two brackets hold it in place, remove the nuts (might be torx) that attach the bracket to the grille and then the grille to the hood. Then clean the grille off, tape it up (real important, do it well), paint, and clear coat, otherwise it will chip. I did this to mine, your car but a year older, and so have many others, so any more questions just ask.
