pull it out so you can look behind it as much as possible. on each one there is a plastic tab that you gotta push down as you pull out, but what i did was to push down on the flap and then get a flathead screw driver and wedge it between the gap between the socket and the pin. then wiggle it back and forth to loosen/pry it apart it and it will pop right out.

yup, get a little stubby flat head screwdriver in there and they should pop right out!
