So I just got the CL grille the other day and was installing it. I noticed that the original hood latch doesn't seem to fit perfectly with the grille but it still fits. I do have the extended hood latch that came with the grille but don't know how to replace the original one. Can anyone tell me how to replace the original one?

There's a C clip that prevents the latch and the spring from coming off. Remove the C clip with a small screw driver or a long nose and make sure you don't lose it or drop it in the engine bay. Slide both latch and spring together. Pay attention to the position of the spring as you will reuse the spring on the new latch. Reslide the latch and spring together back in place and re-attached the C clip.
