Rear Fender Flare Separated from Clips - Do I have to Pull the Whole Thing Off?

Buried the right rear tire into the flare and it separated from the two clips closest to the front that hold the flare to the body. Do I have to pull the whole thing off? Seems like it impossible to get the flare into that clip without having the entire flare removed, too sharp an angle otherwise.

I did the same thing over and over when I had the factory flairs. Here what I did. I don't have carpet, so if you do pull it away from the wall right behind the passenger seat. There will be an ovalish hole on the tub filled with foam. Start pulling the foam out and you will see the other side of the clips. Get some long ass needle nose pliers and pinch the clip and they will pop out. Attach them to the flair and push them back onto the body.
