fasteners from hell

Do you have a trick to remove the fasteners around the fairing.You know,these little pieces of plastic :evil: they put to retain the fairing all together.I haven't tried yet but they look like they're gonna give me a hard time.

Push in on the center til it clicks, then pull it out. To reinsert, pull the center all the way out, put the rivet part in the hole, the push the center back in the rivet til flush. Easy as cake...

It's very easy to loose these clips. If you remove them and leave the inner button pushed in sometimes they come a part and are lost easily. I click the button back up when I remove them so they are held together. The fairing also eats these clips (lost). Go and purchase extras.
