Try pulling out on the trim panel while loosening the nut. This may hold enough tension on the stud to keep it from turning. This may require a second person to do successfully.

The torque I had to put on the nut striped out the plastic retaining pieces. But I got it off...

Now that it is apart you can separate the nuts from the studs. Clean the studs and plastic trim and use a 2 part epoxy like JB Weld to reattach the studs to the trim for reassembly.
