Removing large red nutsert from front panel/grill mount

Just got Jason's great front grill and want to start with new nutserts as it is heavier than the plastic OEM piece and want a tighter grip.

Bought the Proline replacements from Rovers North (PLC946) PLASTIC NUTSERT SERIES & DEFENDER, RNC946, CZA4705L,PLC946 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts but can't get the old ones out as they are pressed in very tightly.

Would you drill out the old pieces? I just don't want to damage the panel in trying to remove.

I used channel lock pliers to press them out.

Stupid question but do you reach in behind the panel and press the ends of the nutsert together using the pliers? I think I tried that with regular pliers and it was a no go.

I removed the whole breakfast and took some out. Jason (nathawind) did the rest.

You press them with the channel locks and they will slide out

I used some curved needle-nose pliers to squeeze and wiggle.
Get enough through the front, then push/pull until they're free.
It's easier after you do a few and it helps to be above 50*F...

You can drill them out? They should fall right out after

I should clarify--- I was reusing mine.

Obviously, if you just need them out then snip or drill....
