I have a pair of forceps that are really long and strong. I was able to get the clip to collapse and then popped them out. It wasn't easy and it did take a considerable amount of time.

Are these the things your talking about?


You push in the center tab, and then you need this tool to pop it out like this.

What Sawgunner said. I can get the carpet off no problem Even didn't have trouble taking off the 10mm nuts from the bolts. I just couldn't get the damn clips to pop.

I would take pics but I'd have to undo everything again. No thanks.
