I'm in the middle if disassembling the passenger side rear hatch area and that stupid clip is giving me grief. I know somewhere there is a trick written on how to remove it, but I can't find it. Any help is appreciated.
Using a small jeweler's flathead screwdriver, insert the screwdriver vertically into the hole until it stops. Push gently to release the clips while pushing and rocking back and forth. It should pop out one side at a time. Hope this helps.
