Top of the grill is pinned in, the bottom has to be pulled forward and down. Or go to your stater, and use the positive battery cable connection as the place to attach positive lead of the charger and put negative lead of charger on the frame for ground. Then grill does not need to be removed. On the front wheel drive, check the couplers on the drive shaft, common for one to shear pin on either end.
