Try prying it with a butter knife. If you break it put in the stang dome!

I just used a tiny screwdriver and pried it off, didn't require much motivation at all.

I just took the tip of my fingers to both sides and pulled until it popped off. It's going to feel like it will break the first time but it's more than likely not going to. Good luck.
