Any DIY to remove/install E90 windshield cowl?

I replaced my plugs and I am wondering if I did not properly reinstall the cowl (cowling??). Any guide on this? I don't see anything that the cowl snaps on.

Thanks a bunch. That helps me get started. Looks like I will have to remove and resit the cowl. Thanks again.

Just noticed that the post is not for the cowling I mentioned when changing spark plugs, but nonetheless, I found the issue and apparently there were tabs that needs to snaps in. I am really wondering why is everything a "cowl", did someone just came up with this because they don't know how to spell c-o-v-e-r? Seems like anything to do with a cowl, is something that covers something.

I think a cowling directs airflow. Where as a cover, just covers.
