I used a small flat head screwdriver to pry them off being careful not to bend them too bad...

Use a utility knife to work them up around the perimeter (thin flat blade screwdriver will help too). You can reuse them. I used a 4mm or 5mm (size that fits snug onto the studs) socket to press them back on.
