Post Removing/Installing Side Gills

Hi,

I want to remove, then install a pair of side gills on my Z3. Does anyone know how to do it and can write down step-by-step how it's done? Or maybe send a link to a website that has the instructions?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

The original owner of my 2002 put on chrome gills. I have the original painted ones and just went to the garage to check them. There is one small bolt to unscrew located at the bottom of the plate closest to the door (below the BMW emblem). It is accessible with the hood open. Other than that, there are five plastic studs, three on top, two on bottom, that look like they just pry out. Hope that helps.
