Just be careful you don't break the little pins holding the light in. be fairly gentle when you pull them off.

Be careful when doing it, but it does take a fair effort to actually break one!

i never liked pushing them they were bending to far in my hands!

i usually just use something blunt to give some extra force on the inside of the boot pushing on the clips.
