With a small screwdriver, try and gently pry them off. Use needle nose plyersw to put them on. When installing them, look for the flat side of the clip, they are pressed when made, so there is a round side and a flat side. If you face the flat side towards the part the clip is contacting, there will be less of a chance it will fly away. Do you have any other questions we could answer here?

I'm pretty sure that the rounded side should be facing the part, not the other way around. The extra bit of rounding helps to keep the e-clip from catching on the part and flying off. I could be ass-backards, but I don't think so.

just take a small flat blade screwdriver, place it in the little gap that makes the clip look like an "e" and use your other hand to prevent the e clip from flying somewhere, then just press down, and it will come out. so basically you are prying it out. dont use too small of a screw driver....the smaller the screwdriver it is..its hard to get the eclip out. just use a screwdriver that is small enough to fit into the little gap. to put them back on. just sit it on the little place where it goes on the hinge pin..make sure its stable and take some pliers, and just clamp the hingepin and eclip in the pliers and press down
