both screw mounts broke off so removal of the grill from the cover was easy.

bent clips that held plastic part of grill to stainless part of grill straight.

tried to separate the two pieces but found that the original pieces were also glued together, made the job more difficult to separate the two.

enter the putty knife, using it between the plastic and the stainless made the job much easier to separate the two.

i didn't scrape off the glue when i put the new plastic grill into the stainless and as a result the two did not fit together and seat as they should have, not the fault of the replacement part, entirely my fault.

everything worked ok but i know that if the glue had been removed, they would have fit perfectly.

replacement part was perfect
