It is part of the bumper, but can be removed. You may as well do both top and bottom cuz you will need to remove the bumper anyway (fairly simple) and the bottom part is easy.
Get yourself some good wire cutters, don't even think about using pliers or a hacksaw.

The fins in the grill can just be snapped off with a pair of pliers.

You don't need to take the bumper of to remove the top grille, as long as you use a short screwdriver or an angled one.
The grille consists of two pieces: the chrome bit and the plastic bit with the fins, they're attached with a couple of screws. Cut the fins from the plastic bit, put some mesh between the two parts and attach the screws again.

If you've got arms and hands like a bird then you may be able to do it, there is no chance I could get mine in there, however it will still be fiddly. It only takes 5-10 mins to get the bumper off and makes it sooo much easier.
