The trick is to align the bottom and top tabs first. This take a little coaxing and patience, but once these snap in, the tabs with the threads line up perfectly.

TIP: Thread the screws into the metal tabs while supporting the tabs with your hand BEFORE installing the grille, back them out, and then install. The threads were a little tight, and putting a lot of pressure on them while the tabs are in the slots risks breaking them off.
