They are very easy to take off/put back on. As I found out when some cretin knocked mine off and it fell to bits (easily put back together).

The body coloured part is held on to the black frame with 3 or 4 smalls clips. So should easily be pryed off gently with a flat screwdriver. Thinking about doing the same to mine actually, because the red paint on the driver's side one has started to fade and flake off on mine.

Anywhere along the edge of the body coloured cover (where it meets the black frame), and carefully try and pry it off.
