The plastic nuts just pull of with needle nose pliers. There are nuts behind the plastic covers and those will come off with a deep well socket.

Here is a video of a vehicle that has a similar process:

Below is the process from the manual on how to remove it. This is not that detailed but once these nuts are exposed, the process will not be that complicated.

Please run through this process and let us know if you have other questions.

Thanks
