removing plastic fender liner without destroying the clips?

this is not meant to be any sort of a permanent thread, but I'd like to know if anyone has a suggestion on how to remove the clips holding the fender liner in place without totally destroying them (I want to re-use them if possible).
I can install my own IMG, but these clips are owning me. any help would be appreciated.

yeah.... I'm trying to take off my fender well shield. some of the one piece ones are a pain to do. the two piece ones I have figured out.

honda mounted the HFP lip kit over some of the existing two-piece ones... if THEY ever needed to change one of my headlights, they would have had a problem...

I hit a cone while autocrossing and somehow totally ripped off my fender well liner, and at the same time, ripped out my ballast for my HID's, losing it on the track. FML
