well i dunno if this is the technically correct way, so possibly wait for a second opinion :lol:
but i just used a fairly thin flathead screwdriver, got it under the seal and levered it up till it came off.
it was a bit fiddly, especially with heads on car.
I have a feeling there is a tool you can buy to make it easy.

there is a special removal tool but can get away with using set if bull nose pliers or simular.

might find they are on there tight so small tap with rubber mallet and dribble of wd40 might be in order.
