Is there clearance in the extruded channel to allow lifting the tab of the clip out vertically? If so you may need a tool to bend the clip upward via the rectangular slot in the clip. I don't think you'll get anywhere trying to slide anything. For the ones out in the open an appropriately sized flat blade screwdriver might work, but for the one behind the capacitor you may need a tool with an angled blade.
