I need to replace the ambient air temperature sensor, which I already bought but am having trouble getting to it. I have done a fair amount of searching and a lot things I found point to removing the whole bumper which I attempted but ran into a few too many snags for my comfort so I am wondering about removing the lower grille and accessing the sensor from there. I found one video out there mentioning this but it was for a 2014 and not sure if my lower grille will come off the same way. I have pushed on it a bit, but do not want to break anything, any help would be greatly appreciated! I have attached a picture of the grille I am hoping to remove in order to replace the sensor.

Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
I haven't found any posts on this issue from members with a 2016+ Explorer. There is a post from a member saying to just detach the grille and move it out of the way but that was on an earlier model.
