Default Push pins?

What is the best way to remove the push pins that hold in the black plastic shroud behind the grille? Trying to replace my grille and can't figure it out

grab a pic of what you're talking about if you can.

if it's what i think you're talking about, usually i pry 'em out with a screwdriver. they are kinda a pain in the ass to pop out and sometimes break, but you can get an assorted package of replacements at any auto parts store for $1-2

I have used needle nose pliers by working them under and they support two sides of the pin head.

The dyke is interesting

To remove the filler panel I just pulled like hell it came right out. But it was also the middle of summer it might be easier to cut the pins and buy new ones at an auto parts store
