They are pretty easy, I took mine off last week to try and paint them, did not turn out very good. I will soon be after some mesh or billet. But yes, they simply press in and have clips that hold them. If you open your hood and look down in the fender, you can see the clips. I pulled my off easily with my fingers. I was too afraid of scratching my paint to use any tools.

Just be careful, keep in mind that they are only plastic.

Yea, once you can get an edge up just work your way around the vent popping it out.

I just used my fingers to pry them out, just work them out evenly starting at top corner. Just watch the clips, they may fall out if your not careful but they usually just fall onto the ground if it happens.
