Only one way...gotta do the finger twists...
However if the sharp cone part is broken off it's harder to remove, because there is no where to grab and twist...I used Tweezers, pliers, and a flat nose philips...and about 2 bottles of corona! (yeah it takes some time)

catalyst. is an unknown quantity at this point
Send a message via AIM to catalyst.
plan on replacing them if you have to take them out, most of them will break, and the ones that dont ussually are so worn out that they wont keep the panel stuck to the door..

I used a flathead driver to get mine off.
