E85 Z4 M Windshield Frame Cover Replacement

I'm in the process of replacing the cracked/broken windshield frame cover (https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_In...-7-056-282-BOE) on my 2006 Z4 M.

I found that a couple of the "screw clips" that go into the top's frame (and that the screws holding on the frame cover screw into) are cracked / broken / not there.

I ordered the fastener kit (https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_In...-7-127-044-BOE), but can't see exactly how to access and replace the clips in the frame; does anyone have any links or experience to share?

Figured it out - remove the T25 bolts holding the folding top cover to the frame; you have to fold back the top and peel out the sides of the top that wrap into a channel on the side of the frame. This will give you enough room to reach between the top and the frame. There is a piece of foam insulation that needs to be removed, then you have access to slide the screw clips in place. Replace the foam, fold the top back into place, and use a trim tool to re-seat the edge of the top in the side channel. Replace the T25 bolts, and you're done.
