Smile wind deflector clip for Boxster 986

Hi guys,
First, this is my first post here.

One side of my wind deflector clip (center piece) was broken.
I saw a few of them for sale on eBay for around $15.

My question is how can I remove the old (broken) clip and replace w/ the new one?
Is it hard or do I even need to visit a dealer to do it?

Thank you.

can you be please a little more specific?
do you mean the
a) piece that attaches to the rollbar or
b) the piece that attaches to the plexiglass windstop itself?

if a) major PITA
if b) you get it cheaper at the dealer

also if it's b) I can give you some pointers how to get it out (it's fairly easy)

I haven't had to replace that part so I can't speak to what is required, but if I was going to buy it, I'd buy it here:

I have found they have very reasonable prices and are very helpful over the phone.
