2004 ML Visor Clip Stuck

I need to replace my drive side visor clip. I bought the new one and it seems really simple. But the old one is stuck.
I flipped over the little cover with a flathead screwdriver. I then used the screwdriver to unclip the only clip that I see. I pulled very hard with my fingers. The old clip wiggles about 1mm side-to-side but does not come loose. Do I just need to pull harder with pliers?
I just want to be sure I do not cause expensive damage to where the clip is connected.

The WIS instruction for removing the sun visors advise the use of an upholstery 'wedge' to pry the item out from the roof panel. This is a slim, plastic wedge-shaped device also used to remove the covers from doors, etc.

If you don't mind damaging/breaking the old clip, a firm tug with your pliers should do the trick....
