I had the same problem when I got my Malavitas. I had a major "WTF, bro?!" and actually asked for help from a tech
figuring it out cuz I came straight from the store to the mountain and just wanted to ride!
Just reach under on those two parts you have circled and peel em up. It folds and flips out of the way. It'll SNAP in and out of place. The gas pedal kinda does the same as well. I get weary of plastic (especially such dinky stuff like these clips) that gets wear during removal and adjustments but I think they'll be okay and easy to replace cheaply if ever any problems.
