Plastic grill cover broke in several places
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

The problem seemed to be in the construction of the grille--too much weight pulling on two screws mounted in plastic. Replacing the part was easy. The question is will it break again since the weak plastic parts have not been strengthened in the replacement grille.
Mounted the new part and screwed it in.
