Grrrr, trying to remove from tow hook access grill

2002 SLK320 6-speed. I have followed the manual describing removal of the little plastic front grill to access the tow hook receptical - without success. It will not just pop out if pressed on each end. It is now twisted up as I used a flat blade screw driver and needle-nosed pliers very carefully? What is the trick to removing this???
