I think you have to pop them out from the back of the dash. In other words, you have to remove your dash to remove them.

Not 100% sure though confused

You can only remove the two rotating flaps. Get a flathead screwdriver, cover the end with masking tape (to prevent scratches) and pry them out. The rest (rotating bracket) can't be removed unless you take the entire dashboard out.
