Removing Air Outlet...HELP!!

I bought the interior trim and knobs kit from Mopar to put in my 2013 Sport. I'm having trouble installing the air outlet covers. You need to remove the air outlets from the instrument panel in order to install them. These are the directions provided (also attached):

1) Rotate the louvers of the air outlet to the ten-o-clock position.
2) Working from the inside of the air outlet, place a small screwdriver or equivalent through the square opening, located at the twelve-thirty position.
3) Carefully pry the retaining tab toward the center of the air outlet and rotate the outlet counterclockwise.
4) Pull the air outlet assembly straight out of the instrument panel.

I'm following these steps exactly and the outlet isn't budging when I spin it counterclockwise. Has anybody removed their outlets before this way and/or have any tips for me?

I did this last week as part of a cb install. Try using different angles for the screwdriver.

Spin the vent around until the square hole lines up with another square hole(use a flashlight to see), then place your screwdriver in that hole and rotate the whole assembly.

I finally got it! you really have to angle to screwdriver up over the tab as opposed to just straight in, came off pretty easily after i realized that. Thanks for the help guys.
