How do you remove this?

I've got the Bentley Manual but can't find where / how to remove this (I want to give it some fresh black paint)

Put the arm down then pop up the black cap. Unscrew the nut and take the arm out.

Not the actual arms, I mean the black vent.

You remove the arms, and slip a flat head and it pops off.

You will have to remove the arm as stated, then pry open with a flat head.

Oh and make sure to put a towel under the screw driver for some leverage, if needed and to not mar the surrounding area.

Take the arm off then you can pry it out with a flat head driver.

Woahh! Thanks for all the replys, I got them off and hit them with 4 coats of Plasti-Dip (<- stuff works wonders). I'll post pics when they're done.

Or if you're cheap you can find them as singles for a couple bucks. Seriously guys, screwdrivers are not pry tools. (not saying i've never done it, but I would never recommend that)
