Remiving trim clips in the trunk

How one removes plastic clips in the trunk to get access to battery in 2006 Z4M R? What exact tool is required?

The expanding rivets? They should have screws in them to make them expand. Just take the screws out.
Then put the "tray" up by turning the knobs and remove the fix-a-flat and air compressor from the top.
There's 3 nuts up there that come off, and the box should pop right out.

The rivets are sort of a pain. I put a fork behind the flange and then remove with slight outward presure. It works for me? Should have put while unsrewing.

Metal fork worked. Not plastic tools. Now how do I disconnect the red plastic attachment and remove the battery?
