the clips i broke are on the inside that hold the grill to the grill shell...impossible to not break
you should just be able to take your HOLE grill shell off by unbolting your grill then pulling back on the tabs where your bumper meets the grill shell. Look along the bottom....
heres some pics for reference
here's the tabs
