Removal and Replacement of front left lower grille on a 2020+ M340i

Has anyone ever removed that front lower left or right outer grille before on a 2020+ M340i? Noticed the other day my driver side front lower outer grille has a broken piece on it and was wondering if there's any steps, illustrations or even video on how to remove that trim piece?

There's this video here, which I am also changing this piece but wondering if there's something for the entire bezel


Thanks in advance

Might want to go to a site like getbmwparts.com - look up the part and diagram and perhaps that would give you a visual on how things fit together? Just a thought

That's where I got the part number for it. It just shows illustrations of the grilles, nothing on how it goes on

You should be able to pull it out as it's only attached via two clips, one roughly centre bottom and one at the part the trim begins to slope downwards from the top right side 'corner'.
