I had trouble at first, but if you get those small tabs off first, then apply pressure from behind where those tabs are (pushing forward) and pull from in front at the corner, they come off pretty easily.

Note, you'll need to gradually increase the pressure, I remember feeling like I was pushing too hard, but then they came off.

If your replacing them altogether, then you should worry if they break. However, if you're painting them, then just increase the pressure from behind gradually.

At least, that's what worked for me.
