I just used a small flat head screwdriver to get them out, no special tool needed.

Yeah, use a flat screw driver under the lip of the center "screw" to lift it up, Then the whole, two-part fastener comes right out.

Be careful not to drop any of the parts down into the bowels of the engine compartment - the little, black devils can be hard to find in there..... Don't ask....
