I highly recommend using the proper tool for removing door trim panel, or similar panel, clips. I bought mine at my FLAP for about $5.00, smoothed out any little burrs that I thought might cause a nick or scratch, and wrapped a couple turns of masking tape around the bend of the tool that provides a fulcrum point for "levering" the clip from the hole.... IMHO, it is one of the best tools for 5 bucks I've ever spent, since I've had to remove my door panels a lot more than a couple of times over the last 40 years. But if you're careful, and lucky, you may not need it. In any case, not that big a deal, but without a design purposed tool, as always, YMMV...
