The replacement involves replacement of the entire pad though some have tried to cover the dented one with a stick-on Roundel. They DO NOT simply unclip or peel off to be replaced :-(
On my E90, they changed the whole assembly including the airbag on warranty... because of the logo that faded.

The second time, I did apply a stick-on roundel... it had a carbon-like appearance and even looked better than the original! That's the way to go IMO.
