As an old Ford mechanic, I have all of these, and they work with the metal door panel clips, as well as the plastic ones. The curved one works the best.

I would use a putty knife. In conjunction with a screwdriver.

What do I know...I've only been working on cars for 26 years... ;)

Well, I got the Matco tool kit, was kind of expensive at 40.00 shipped. But I seem to be doing a bunch of cars now LOL So I guess it's worth it.

Now to find some videos on removing them :)
