    You will have to remove the bumper to get the grill off, in order to change the badge.

    If it's pre facelift, yes, facelift, no. The latter you have to remove the front part of the front wheel arch linings to get access to a bumper mounting screw behind it.

    Yours is a face lift, so the front part of the arch will have to come off...

    I just ripped the old badge out (the metal clip on the inside will stay on the grill, assuming you have another badge there atm.). Then with a pair of pliers i lifted the clip a bit and pushed the new badge on.

    I think you will need pliers which looks something like these to hold the clip in place:
