Hi TB,i can only explain like this.If you open the bonnet right at the front of the car, there are 3 pieces of plastic.One left covering the headlight one in the middle covering part of the rad(where you can put cam belt change info on a sticker)and one right covering the other headlight.The ones left and right can be undone by turning a screw,with a large flat blade screwdriver.The long black piece in the middle has 2 screws either end,and when you remove this the two parts seam to be glued or bonded to the front of the rad.I hope this makes sense  ;D.Dean.

No pipes coming from them as far as i can see,they are gray plastic on the outside.And maybe foam or sponge or something,on the inside.They are defiantly siliconed to the outside of the rad,all round.Wish i had a phone to take a picture,i sound like a idiot. ;D Dean.

You mean the front fan casings :-\

These are actually fitted from the engine side, even though they are ahead of everything else.

Should simply push the tops towards the bumper to re secure :y

You don't mean the headlight back rubber covers, do you? They are grey, and in the right situation. The things you remove to change bulbs.
