Trunk liner

What's the best way to get the little tabs out to remove the trunk liner. I tore one up trying to get it out. Don't want to do that to the rest. A screwdriver lifts it up but what's the trick to get it out clean????

You will need a trim tool, they can be bought at your local auto parts store. This is what they look like.

The plastic trim removers from harbor freight work too.

This!

I have used them many times. I think I got a whole set for under 15 dollars. Cheap and worth it for sure!
