Does anyone know of an easy way to get these suckers out? Ive tried using a flathead and some needle nose pliers but it didnt really work for me.
thanks in advance

The ones in the middle underneath? A fork...No ****. A fork and they don't get all fucked up, and come out easily.

I use mini-needle nose pliars. When I worked at Sears we pulled so many one of the techs bought a cheap full-size needle nose that I took to the grinder to make em work for those. Sorry, no pics tho.

I use the claw part of a small-sized hammer. Works like a charm if the hammer is small enough. You can also use one of those clip remover tools...

You can use a nail puller. Worked perfectly for me. Really handy when removing the bumper filler.
