Those basket clips don't really come out unless you damage them, or the
square hole in the black plastic frame screwed to the back of the
lens/reflector assembly. And since that frame is not available
separately... Buy some new clips and destroy the old ones. The whole
job is way more of a pain than it needs to be.
