What is the procedure (step by step instructions) for removing and then replacing both grills on a Pontiac Montana 2002? Any special tools required? Can it be done by the average person? How do you remove the inserts in a montana grill are they glued in or how are they fastened into the grill
Do you

Hello,

The grille comes off in two parts.

Open and support the hood.
Remove the front hood seal.
Remove the hood latch linkage from the secondary hood latch.
