Just yesterday purchased a 2008 passion. lower section of front "grille" has been cut out and parts of a towing apparatis are sticking out and very ugly. Question is...How do I get to that and remove it (I will never tow mine) and what and where to get a replacement "honeycomb" piece of grille to make it look right again?? Are there any Smart catalogues or websites to purchase original or custom parts for our cars? Thanks in advance!

You will need to remove the front bumper (starting with removing the side skirts. There's plenty of how-to's for the bumper online). Then the actual hitch is usually bolted to the frame behind the wheel well covers. I had to pull one off my 2013.

Be aware that Evilution is a pay site, and the fee is quite small compared to the amount of knowledge on the site. Also check with Youtube for specific panel removal.
