Thanks in advance.
I had to remove mine also to put the cargo system in.
First off......Make sure it is warm if not hot outside.
If not, put it somewhere that is otherwise you WILL break them.
I was VERY lucky that mine came off well.
They are hard to pry up. I used a wide screwdriver and a small flat pry bar to get them up. I used a pair of angled needle nose pliers to squeeze the clips and push up from below on the ones that I could get to.
The main thing is to watch as you are pulling them off that you don't see a lot of distortion in the plastic. If it starts to distort to bad or change color, try from another angle if possible.
Once you start to get it off, it will get easier. You can squeeze the clips together a bit as you pry it up.
Good luck and I hope yours goes as well as mine.
