There are a couple Fog Light Diagrams (Install/removal etc) on the page linked to in my signature.
You may also want to grab the Connector/Splice/Ground pdf from there also. Not sure if you need it now. But can be very handy for any electrical work.
Actually I am not sure if ANY of that shows hot to get the spacers out.. but there it is anyway....

Put the front end up in the air using ramps or jack stands. Remove from the front splash pans six T20 Torx screws and four large push pins. On the push pins, use two small flat screwdrivers inserted in the slots of the side of the seat, shown in the picture, and pry the center of the pin loose. Using a slotted trim panel tool or something similar, pull the center most of the way out of the seat and remove the splash shield.
You will probably have a plug that is attached just like the fog lamp, both left and right shown.

Great pictures Gramps, but I think from his original question, he's asking how to get the filler plug out of the fog lamp housing area. A Compass that didn't come from the factory with fog lights probably has a filler piece that takes up that area instead.
I'll post pics whenever I have enought posts for it to be allowed. I'll try to explain the best I can until that point. It's really quite simple. The plastic plug snaps in at 12 and 6 o clock. If you look at Gramps' first diagram, you can see what I'm talking about. Once access is gained and a little light is available, just release the clips and that's it. Like I said, I have pics; just can't post 'em yet. I did some touchup painting on them and Like the way it turned out. I'm having driving lights installed onto the bumper tomorrow at noon. Can't wait! Thanks guys for your help
I may go a little over board on what needs to be remover but I like to have some working room , if I don't and someone gets all cut up or breaks something by pulling on it too hard I haven't given very good advise/instructions. I've got so many scars on my arms now from working in tight spots that they look like road maps. If someone wants to take 'short cuts" that's their decision.
I thought that the plugs may be held in by 2 screws just like the fog lamps. Guess not.
