Default lower grill gone!!! stolen?

I walked out to my car to see the lower grill missing!!! Looks like someone jacked it because i didnt' see any damage of any kind. are those easy to take out? Maybe it fell out? seems so unlikely. has this happened to anyone?

I like the look of the factory grill ...where can I get one online? what's a good place to browse grills and order one?

Default RE: lower grill gone!!! stolen?

It probably fell out.
When I changed my upper grill only 3 of the 9
clips were fastened. Then I checked my lower
grill to find only 2 clips fastened. I fastened the
loose clips so it would not fall out.
There are only these clip/tab things that
go thru slots in the bumper cover to hold them on.

Quite possible, I tapped into one of those cement stoppers in a parking lot, and my lower grill popped out, goes right back on though.

You can purchase a replacement on Ebay fairly inexpensively.

Those lower grille pop out too easily.
The tabs work their way loose 1 by 1 until the damn thing bails out on you.
You most likely lost it.
