you just poke the top of it with a small phillips screw driver or something small with a pointy end. it'll pop down and release itself. to install it back in you have to push it from the bottom up so that the part you poked on top is now sticking out. i hope you understand.

yeah like he said, to take them out, press a screwdriver into the center until it "pops" in and then pry up the screw with a flathead.

To replace them, push the bottom of the screw back out with your finger. Then put it back in your car and push down the center until it "pops" back in. Voila thumbsup

I don't think there's any way to get the ones holding the very back trunk interior out with out breaking them and probably scratching your plastic.
They're very cheap to buy replacement ones from the dealer. I got a bag for $3 I think.
They are a terrible design. The ones on the trunk tray go in and out with out a problem though. confused

Why would you have to break them? I've had mine in and out several times and never broken one. Be GENTLE! grin
