I've tried search I swear but I can't find a diy for led tail installation on 01 vert

Maybe I'm just a retaaaaahd, but I looked online, I looked at ddm (whose site diys aren't working), I looked at bimmian (they glanced over the oem removal part) as well as this site and some other sites but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. Please - I know that they are out there so puuuleeease help me find them. I have a pre-facelift 'vert. I bought the ddm led tails (with reverse lights), I need a detailed, pictoral walk through for getting the oem tails out and the new ones in. Specifically my problems are:

1) Removing the oem housing and the lenses themselves - I haven't seen ANYTHING on this.
2) Removing the bmw clips without a bmw clip removal tool (using a screwdriver)

This was the best I could find after a short search....

It's not a vert, but it works the same way...

I also have an 01 vert and when I did mine, I found a great DIY on one of the sponsor sites. You may want to check those out (some of the others you haven't been to yet)
