floor boards

I have a set of floor boards on my 06 SG, I want to take them apart to powder coat them. I just not sure on the inserts. I see that they kind of just push them. is there a way to get them back off with wrecking them...any tips?

WD40 the stubs that stick through and use a dull instrument. Most times, you just cut them to replace them. They can be worked out, but be careful and use lots-O-lube.

I used the wd40 method on mine and they weren't too bad at all to pop out. Lubed them up and used needle nose to squeeze the rubber together and get them started back through the holes and then a little pressure and patience.

When I changed my inserts to a different style I used 2 long flat screwdrivers to pop the old one off.
Pressing the new ones on I used lots of dish soap and went on easy. Had I used soap for removal it would have been easier still.
