Front Grill Removal '05 TJ

Does anyone know how to remove the front grill on an '05?

Due to an accident the grill has shifted, thus causing the hood to misalign.

Its not that I want to complete remove the grill. More so, I need to know where the bolts are located that hold the grill in place so I can loosen them, straighten grill, align hood and tighten.

Thanks in advance.

You have the 6 fender bolts on each side. The bottom center bolt and the two support arms on top. There is alot of adjustment.

Did you get hit on the front bumper? You may have tweaked the frame a little.

You can also move the fhood a little using the torx screw unneath the cowl.

No frame damage as I was not hit head on. Was more of a corner shot into the fender. Frame appears mint.

I can see its just the grill that moved as I can see where the original bolt on top was and now where it moved to.

I appreciate the info. i'll be taking a look when I get home from work, weather permitting, and posting back later with updates.
