Expert:  goodwrench9124 replied 6 years ago.
if you are refering to the black retainers, they are reusable, unless you break one, they can be bought at any gm dealer!!!

yes, you can use a flatbladed screw driver, or a pair of needle nose pliers work real well!!!

Pull outward to disengage the integral retainers.
