Use an upholstery tool to get it out. Various sizes, but basically a two-pronged tool that'll pull that sucker out. Then, look here for a replacement: Push Type Retainer GM Ford Chrysler

I'm not familiar with it, specifically. But I used those upholstery tools for the plastic retainers on my fenders when I installed my Bushwackers, and they were fantastic. Bought em at an auto supply store, but don't recall which one.

Trust me, use one of them to pull the offending retainer out. You could also do it with a pair of pliers, if you don't wanna spend the $$ on some tools you might not use for much else. Basically, once you pull it out, it's worthless anyway. Breaks the plastic teeth.

I'm assuming that the retainer's teeth are stripped...that's usually why you can't pull it out.

The gist of it is this: yank that bad boy and replace it. Not sure why you want to do this – your OP doesn't say – but I've given you all the info you need to do it.

Up to you to make it happen.

A lot of them are stripped on install. Most of them will simply spin if you try to pull them. On the plus side, they're relatively easy to replace.

I hate plastic retainers, but U.S. mfrs seem to love them...
