pull toward rear of car then lift the front edge out,
if you go near ur cars paint with a screwdriver put a cloth or something over it as it will mark very easily.

Thanks.
Done it without a screwdriver, it was push towards the front and lift out.

I like these smoked ones better than the crystal clear ones, what do you's think?
