Anyone have any tips for working with these bumper cover clips? Having a nightmare of a time with mine (on the 2015). They're shattering before coming out. Trying various screw drivers as well as my plastic molding kit that has a bunch of forked tools. Could be because its only 40 degrees outside today, but these things dont want to budge. Silicone spray maybe?

Also, in the wheel well at the top edge of the bumper cover, there's a small clip that is removed by pushing the center in (verses pulling the center out like the rest of the clips). How do you refasten this type of clip?

The sun came out and it warmed up a little bit and they all started coming out no problem. And I figured out the weird clip. Push the center pin in to pull the whole thing out; then to reinstall, push the center pin way out, slide whole thing into place, then push center pin in flush. FWIW, it's the clip at the top edge of the bumper cover
