We're talking about the ones on the front, right? Not the ones on the sides? OK, you need to detach the front trim from the main bodies, then bring them together sandwiching the valence panel in between. Tighten the two nuts and Bob's your uncle!

Oh all right then The expression "Bob's your uncle" means, "and there you have it!" Every Englishman knows this one.
There IS a weird American non-word I've seen that captures the same mood. It's supposed to be the French word "voila", but I have seen it spelled as anything from "walla" to "wallah" to "wulla"! It's what the French chef says as he proudly presents his creation to the customer.
Live 'n' learn

And just to prove you can find ANYTHING on the Internet, here's the origin of the phrase ...
"Bob's your uncle" is a way of saying "you're all set" or "you've got it made." It's a catch phrase dating back to 1887, when British Prime Minister Robert Cecil (a.k.a. Lord Salisbury) decided to appoint a certain Arthur Balfour to the prestigious and sensitive post of Chief Secretary for Ireland. Not lost on the British public was the fact that Lord Salisbury just happened to be better known to Arthur Balfour as "Uncle Bob." In the resulting furor over what was seen as an act of blatant nepotism, "Bob's your uncle" became a popular sarcastic comment applied to any situation where the outcome was preordained by favoritism. As the scandal faded in public memory, the phrase lost its edge and became just a synonym for "no problem."
