Hello.
I am removing my front bumper on my 08 chevy cobalt LT in order to expose my radiator so I can replace it. As part of the procedure, I have removed my headlights and headlight brackets. On the inside of the bumper where the headlights were, there is a bracket securing the bumper to the fender. The bracket is held in place by a single 10mm bolt and what looks like 2 metal push tabs (?). I am not really sure what to call these things. My question is, how do I remove these metal push tabs? I tried using a flathead but it's pretty difficult to pry up on them - in general, I am not sure if this is the right appraoch, anyway. They do need to come out if I am going to remove the bumper, though. Thanks in advance for yoru help.

Here are some pictures of the bracket in question:

Some background...
I was following along on a bumper removal "How To" on this thread. Take a look at step #7 - Here is the link: http://www.yourcobalt.com/forums/exterior/36497-remove-bumper-cover.html
The difference is that, in that "How To", that person's bracket is secured by three 10 mm bolts. As opposed to mine, which have the 2 metal tab things and one 10 mm bolt. I would really appreciate your help on how to remove those metal tab things
