im guessing your trying to get the insert out. it can be done without breaking any tabs but its tough. when I swapped mine in I think I broke 2 tabs. didn't effect it at all though. I just used a flat tip screw driver and took my time with it.

I don't think it can be done. Not without breaking some tabs or at the very least marring the plastic with a screwdriver or something. I'd just mask off the outer grille surround.
