Pretty simple. Here is the step by step from VFAQ

[ul]Remove the lifter
[ul][*]Pull the lifter out of the head by hand (pliers shown for clarity)[*]Remove all oil from the new lifter - this also applies if you are cleaning and reusing the old lifters. Get a large paperclip and straighten it out. Insert it into the top hole of the lifter until it bottoms, then press on it lightly - you can now easily collapse the lifter with the paperclip still in place. If cleaning and reusing the old lifters:
[ol][*]Submerge the lifter in cleaning solution (brakeparts cleaner, carb cleaner, acetone). Soak it for as long as you can, preferably up to a day or more.[*]Insert the paperclip, depress the internal valve, and pump the lifter up and down until it moves freely and the fluid coming out is clean.[*]If you have the time, repeat the above at least one more time.[*]Remove the lifter, turn it upside down, depress the paperclip, and pump the lifter until no more cleaning fluid comes out. Set the lifter aside to dry for a while. [/ol][*]Submerge the lifter in oil, depress the paperclip, and pump the lifter to fill it with oil.[*]Remove the lifter, turn it upside down, depress the paperclip, and pump the lifter until no more oil comes out. This will leave a thin film of oil for startup.[*]The lifters will clatter for a few minutes at startup when empty like this, but that is better than having them too full of oil and bending some valves.[*]Drop the lifter back in the bore - it doesn't really matter how you line up the oiling holes in the lifter, they rotate under normal use.

well if you cant figure it out outside the car there is also ways of doing it with them installed.

Simply lube them how you normaly would after bleeding and install them. Then remove the MPI fuse which should stop power from going to the fuel pump. Then just crank the car over for about 15 seconds and they will prime themselves
