Removing side markers?

I have an '04 330xi and I just got clear side marker lenses, however I can't seem to get the original side markers off. I've tried sliding them to no avail, any ideas as to why they aren't sliding off?

They'll come off but with some force. Make sure to push back on them towards the back of the car.

Are you pushing them the wrong way?
Try wetting them, perhaps there is so much gunk on the gasket it has bonded to the fender.
That's what I did.
