I think you will find they pull right out from the groove in the heatsink.

You want a tool like a screwdrive to prise them out. Look up google images for "semiconductor heatsink spring clip" and you will see what they (probably) look like in the groove.

Then again, I could be totally off the mark and telling you to destroy the clips....
