yes they can be removed with a socket wrench and the right socket. Just look at the flap youll see how to take them off.

I thought the only way was to cut them off and then and melt the edges smooth with a lighter...I haven't tried it personally though.

Well are you talking about the front ones....or do you have rear ones also.

The Front ones have to be cut with either a razor blade, snips, scissors, or something like that.

And the rears will and should screw right off.

Took a box cutter knife. It cut like butter. Who cares if its jagged, you cant really see it unless you are really close anyway

Why would you sand them down? Just cut them with whatever tool you want, if they come out jagged- then you can hit them with a sanding block or whatnot..
