For the rear plastic one, insert a thin blade screwdriver in the slots (two on each side of the frame about 1" from the top/bottom) and push back the tab while applying pressure to pull the frame away from the license plate. There are 4 snap tabs on the frame that just need to be pushed back to disengage from the body slots. Be careful, they're not very sturdy.

The above answer is apparently for the rear, but I'll leave it there. The question was for the front, so... the front C5 license filler has a wide tab at the top that slips up into a slot in the front nose. It is held up there by two small Phillips head screws at the bottom of the filler.

If you get on the ground and use a flashlight to look into the thin gap between the bottom of the filler plate and the bumper recess, you should be able to see a screw a couple of inches in toward the center from each lower corner.

Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the 2 screws. Then you pull the filler plate out at the bottom just enough to clear the bumper and then pull it down to disengage the top tab.

If you need a new filler, the current part number for a GM replacement (unpainted) is 10288540. They are around $110. If you do a Google Shopping search for that part number, you should be able to take a look at some pictures of one so you can see the wide tab and 2 screw holes. There are usually some on E-bay.

There are two screws on the bottom of the cover. You should have just enough room to fit a screwdriver in between the nose of the car and the cover without scratching the paint. It might be tight, but the cover should give enough for you to get tools in there.
