Wind deflector

I have broken the clips on the wind deflector 2000 s, big surprise. I tried for a month to get them off then i run out of patients. So i have new clips but was wondering if someone has done this before and could give a quick tutorial ?

If I recall, the old clips are pressed in. They will pop out. I broke one of mine so I found an approporiately sized drill bit and worked it in to leverage the old clip out. From here, you can snap the new ones in.

They are pressed in. In broken one of mine and drilled the remaining piece out. A little scary doing that as it's all plastic but it worked out fine.
