Twist the sides the same way, both clockwise or anticlockwise to disengage the retainer.

Did you twist enough for the inner faces to slide across each other?

They are flexible, and there's no other way. If they break then they were going to break anyway. It often requires turning the guide so it sits across the mounting base. The tiny corner missing on the inner faces helps then slip past each other and release.
