2016 front bumper grill ring replacement

I have done a fair amount of research on how to remove the grill insert rings on the front bumper (including reading through several posts on here). I also watched several videos on how to pop them out from the front and it seemed easy enough. With that being said, I have managed to remove 4 of the 7 rings from my 2016 High Altitude but can't manage to get the 3 rings in the middle of the bumper off. I have tried using trim tools, credit cards, small tint squeegees, and still can't get them to pop off. Does anyone know if the process is different for the 2016's? I have noticed that the tabs for each ring are in different spots. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.

First post but surely won't be my last!

Let's see some pics of the 16's rings. I'd bet they're the same as the 14-15 rings mounting wise.

Sure thing....I'll post up the back of the 4 I have popped off once I get home in a couple of hours! Nothing like driving around with 4 of the rings popped off on a brand new vehicle 😳

Nothing has changed from my research. 14-16 is all the same.
