SMG Compression Spring Removal Help Needed

I have my SMG out of my 2003 Z4 doing significant maintenance to it and thought I would change out the compression springs while it is out. The problem is, I can't figure out how to get the covers out to get access to the springs. Only one of the Springs gains access through a screw plug, the rest are these pressed in covers that are inset. I've looked at other forums and they all refer to a different style of plug that is not inset and can be pried out. Any advice on how I can get these out would be much appreciated.

You can look at the plugs I'm referring to via the realoem link, specifically parts 1 and 5. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=23_1054. I can also send pics to anyone that needs to see the actual transmission._a_
