Dan, I wish I could recall the exact drill size I used for this but I believe it was 11/32". Just as you said the 1/4" hole was very tight and required me to use a screwdriver to lever out the fastener. When I went to something a little larger than 5/16" I was able to get my hand behind the panel board and pop the spring clip out with ease. In other applications like a door panel you might want a tighter fit but in this case the larger hole worked out very well.
