Try using a taped flathead screwdriver to get under the tab and gently twist as you are pulling out the grill (and supporting the bumper)

i did this, i used 2-3 flatheads. (1 in each tab) .jammed it in the tabs and had them rest downward (buttwise) so the weight caused them to point up. then i pulled up slightly and out, worked like a charm.

But for those who love,
