Front reflector replacement

I have a 2000 323ci. I want to replace the stock amber reflectors on sides of the front bumper with clear reflectors. I can't figure out how to take off the stock reflectors. Any advice? I am sure I could pry them off with a screwdriver but I do not want to risk breaking anything or scratching the paint.

I replaced the reflectors on my '02 330...not sure if they're the same style.
The reflectors are held in place with built in 'spring-loaded' clips. If you push the entire reflector down, they should give a little. Then you can pull the top out and the whole piece comes out.

Installing the new ones is a trick too. Just don't push too hard, or you'll crack them.
