Grille Replacement Question - W123

I am replacing my front Grille today with a nice shiny new one. At the moment I am not sure where all the mounting screws are. I have the obvious 4 screws out, but it seems to be some other connection / mounting to the Grille.

Looks like possibly I need to remove the hood latch to get on in the center? Thanks.

As I remember you have to remove some fasteners by going through holes while bending your neck around and working upside down. you dont need to remove any latch components.

Seems like it is something like that. It is just not clear.

The new grille seems to have a slot in the center for what looks like would be a 5th screw, but I only have found 4. I will keep digging around. Thanks.

There were 6 screws. The Middle two really buried. Think I got it.

I was going to say, there are 6 screws. Two are very much a PITA to work with.

you can't link an image that's on your hard drive this way...
you need to edit, go advanced, and upload to the server.
or upload to an image hosting service, THEN link the image...
