Clutch Pedal Clip Removal

I'm changing the clutch master cylinder in my 97 4.0, Everything is going great, except the pint that holds the master cylinder to the clutch pedal is held in place with some type of plastic clip. I'm afraid to just break it off in case I can't get a new one easily. Anybody know how to take this off?

It's been several years since I removed mine to remove the clutch system but I don't recall it taking more than a few seconds to get the clip off and it didn't break in the process.

The new one also came with the same clip. I pried the old one off and the new one snapped right on. The whole thing was pretty straightforward. Just got back from taking it out for a spin. Thanks for the help everyone!

What about the clutch end? There is a plastic piece that is held in place by two plastic tabs. The tabs were cut off at the base of the piece on the old one.......do I need to do the same or are they designed to break when you first push the clutch pedal in?

I just installed my mopar master and slave last week. I thought that the two plastic tabs on the slave would break away but they didnt. I took the slave off again and cut them off at the pushing end so they were nonexistant and reinstalled the slave by just pushing it inreally hard while tightening the bolts. If you only cut the ends off after it is installed, you get an annoying clicking noise.
