I FUCKING HATE THEM.

But anyways, is there supposed to be a tool or technique for these things? Prying them with a flat head screwdriver takes the whole assembly out, and it's terrible trying to put them back in. Why would someone do something like this to us, there has to be another way! :(

I take them off with my fingers. But it really helps to grow some nails first. I don't know how many times I have cut the underside of the nails. Those tab are so damn sharp :(

Knowing how stiff the pins are, the blade might just break :p I think this car was designed to be serviced only by dealers. For instance the bolts holding in the reverse lamps are 9.5mm.... who uses sizes in between?!

And the fact that they break too, I dont know how many times I've gone to the dealer to get replacement clips in the trunk and wheel wells.

This is what I do and I have absolutely no problem whatsoever. I do need to get some replacement clips though. How much did they run you RZ?
