I didn't have to remove any clips, they came off by just a little pry (the blackberry tool I used was a tiny plastic piece used to pry housing apart) to get my fingers around them & a little pull. I don't have pix, but search for a post on here from HinGurl... it was a while ago but she put pix up.
Edit: maybe it wasn't her but I found this.

I just took mine off, surprisingly easy. No the chrome trim doesn't change anything. Just pry along the top(3 clips) gently and you can pull the whole cover out with your hand.
Now I'm gonna apply my lamin x cover
It's easier to get your finger in around the thin upper corner area & loosen from there.
