How do you take this clip off?

The clip under the headlight, i'm trying to get my fitment better on my bumper but i can't figure out how to unhitch it from the fender side.

there is a metal tab on your fender that slides into the outside of the plastic piece under the headlights. like haurelio said pull out the inner part then work toward the outer then pull the entire piece inward to get the tab out of it....i broke the plastic part where the tab goes on mine, so take your time

There's a little latch about halfway up that crack that hooks the two pieces together. Cover a flat head screwdriver in a rag or use a thin plastic trim tool to push in the crack from the side towards the hood roundel and the clip should pop loose
