That looks like them. I thought they were zip tied but the thread you linked me to said one screw and two minutes to remove???

Yes, the grill that covers the factory grill and the hood latches is held on by a single toggle bolt. You pull the grill forward to put tension on the "wings" of the toggle as you loosen the bolt. (It's a fairly long bolt.) Once you've loosened it a bit, you release your pull on the grill and pull the toggle bolt through the factory plastic grill. (Sometimes you have to use a screwdriver to collapse one of the "wings" of the toggle to pull it through the plastic grill.) Once you've done it, it's really quite quick and simple.
