Any thread for relacing the front orange reflectors?

I'm hoping it's pretty easy to do.

when i did mine, i had a really hard time taking the stock ones out. what i did was folded a business card and slipped it under the middle of the reflector then used the card to give me leverage to take the whole reflector out...
