Assuming its A B3/4 they are a right pita to remove. you probably will bend the bonnet to remove them. I cant remember how i've removed them!!!
Goggle a picture, that will help, i think you put a flat screwdriver in from the underside of the bonnet.

I have never removed them myself, i can only think they are clipped in somehow and not bonded in, i will look at mine for you.

Right just had a look, silly question but you have removed the heating plugs, yes? then when they are off you can see what i can only describe as a spreader that has opened up when the jet was inserted.

Wish i could put photo's on but i can't, maybe somebody else can for you. Hope it's of some help.

There's a little tab underneath which you need to fold up to release them.

You can still get new ones

That's the word, i could only think of spreader to describe it, the good news is from mikes2 in that you can still get them, very handy to know !
