My Repair & Advice
I discovered that two of the retention tabs on the grate are actually retained by screws, and those two tabs were broken when I pried the grate off. I ordered the new part, which fit perfectly, but I had to partially uninstall the over-the-range microwave in order to do so. I loosened the support screws that hold the microwave up and lowered the front of the machine to expose the screws that needed to be removed and replaced. Once I reinstalled microwave, it looks like new again.
