    Pull off the old badge making sure the clip on the back stays on the grill, then thread a lenght of brick tie tape (or some sort of wide tape) through the grill behind the clip.
    Then push the new badge on whilst pulling on the brick tie tape keeping the clip on the grill.
    It might be a bit fidley, but its a lot easier than taking the bumper off.
    cheers:thumbsup:
