The easy way? or the persiration way?

Easy way.....Go to you local parts guy or dealer, and buy (2) new one of these. Then take a pair of diagonal pliers and snip off the top and push the peg thru the hole

Perspiration way..... Use diagonal pliers and work the plug up buy pulling on like a claw hammer without squeezing too hard as not to cut thru the barbed peg. You can work it..Swear at it a little and it will eventually will pull out. Bad news is it will not be the same and won't fit as tight when you re-use

They make tools specifically for removing clips like that. I bought one for something like $5 that looks like this.

Looks like they make better ones that you could spend more money on if you wanted to.
