E90 lower grille help

Hey I do not know how I remove my lower grilles on my e90. Its a stock bumper with the three grilles. I have seen a few pictures here on the forum, and tried to search, but there is no DIY for these grilles.

I know that there are a few clips behind the grilles, but do I really have to remove my whole bumper for this little operation? Or is it possible to come through the wheelbow (?) and open the clips and pop it out?

or...

Is it possible to just push the grill in, and grab it out?

Good q.. i'm about to attempt this soon to paint them black, but all the DIYers have been e92s.. we seem to have a plastic bar across the middle of the grille, wherease e92s do not.

The center comes out fairly easily. From everything I've read, the sides require you loosen the front bumper cover to get at them.
