It's a shame that Ifixit chooses to totally ignore these valuable parts. The iPhone 4 repair ignores them. As does the rest of the world. Scott Millard gives the only partial description of how to install them.

Get with it ifixit...

When replacing the front assembly on the iPhone 4, there are two pieces that need to be transferred to the new assembly: 1) front camera bezel and 2) the earpiece grill or cover. Look at your old front cover and see if both are still there. They will need to be gently removed, usually with a razor blade. When setting both of these into place, it is easier to put them on the phone, then set the front assembly down on top of them. Notice that the camera bezel ring has tabs on it and will fit one way only. Rotate it until it is sitting flush. Don't bother trying to reuse the adhesive on the speaker grill. Clean it off, place it shiny side up on the phone and carefully seat the front assembly.

The problem with the original replacements is that you need to take apart your phone to insert it more or less completely (which is cumbersome and/or expansive)... I found a cheap workaround and posted my solution here.
