unscrew as far as possible. then wiggle them out. or use a clip removal tool and replace with new ones.

ozbmx i got mine from auto one or supercrap or some such. basically its a flat bar with a v in the end. you slide it under the edge of the clip/scrivet, and use it like a crowbar to lever the bastard out. you can make one from an old screwdriver if you have a grinder handy

I have two tools from Wurth for these things. I undo them all day long at work and the right tool makes life soo much easier.
Not cheap but Wurth every sent....sorry. :roll:
