Just take a flathead screwdriver, press down on the plastic tabs in the clips, pull the grills out. The new ones just snap right in.
I followed Sylon's instruction and it works perfectly on my 535i. You don't have to remove the rubber seal on the bumper, just have to use a flathead screwdriver to push on the plastic clips and pull the grill out.
