Question New grille insert and tongue?

I ordered one of those S600-like, Avant-garde grille inserts for my 1995 E320. I read that the connection points may not be as numerous or as sturdy as the OEM grille. Does any one have any suggestions about how the insert is removed and how the new insert will attach? Do I have to remove the entire grille to then remove the insert, or can I just exchange the insert? I am no kind of mechanic, so any assistance you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.

By the way, I ordered the grille from

Hey, I forgot to ask about that little tongue that releases the hood. The stock part is integrated in the grille. I wonder if I need a new part from the newer cars that have grilles similar to my avant-garde grille, if I can just paint the current part black, or if it really doesnít matter because you canít see the piece until you release the hood. Any tips would be appreciated.
