I have no idea what those small pieces are. I never did anything but buy the cover and rip out the old, install the new. I don't think they are needed as far as I can tell. It says right above that part that it is for vehicles with "protective glazing" which to me means the thicker, heavier glass that is available for E39s. I had a buddy who installed the heavier glazing (i.e. glass window) on his car doors...not so sure about the front and rear ones, however.
