    I have a small penny sized dent on the side of the bed and I was going to remove this and try to see if I can bang it out but I've never seen clips like this, anyone know how to remove them?

    its hard to explain but there are two tabs on opposing corners inside the center hole that you need to use a pick and pry towards the center of the hole while keeping pressure on the tab to pop it out. they are a pain in the dick to remove.

    You might want to check if there is a "paintless dent repair" guy in your area. Most dealerships know a local guy that comes around and pops small dents for them. They are WAY cheaper than a body shop and know some amazing tricks to get it done. I have a buddy that has been a "PDR Pro" since we were young and the stuff he can do is amazing without breaking the bank.

    I wonder why they make them this way. Is there a special $60 tool to remove them, or do they mean for them to be replaced?
