To minimize the chance of damaging the existing paint job, we positioned a plastic scraper just to the right of each metal clip before we popped it up. (Each of the approximately six metal retaining clips has three tangs.) Then we placed a medium screwdriver with the flat portion horizontal on top of the plastic scraper. Next we carefully inserted a smaller screwdriver (with the end shoved into the clip's center tang) and pushed the top end downward quickly so that it would release and remove each clip.
