E36 3 series 2 dr coupe - interior help!!

hey...

trying to get the roof lining out of my car so that i can get it re-trimmed and the sunroof serviced etc...

the little spring loaded handle things that fold down from the side of the roof (commonly known as "jesus handles") are giving me a bit of grief...

please would one of you people of wisdom assist me and tell me how you actually get them out from the roof so i can get the lining out... they're stopping it from coming out... there's no screws or anything.. so its got me a bit stumped :P

thanks in advance as im sure someone here would have pulled out their interior before :P

The left side and right side have a clip as wide as your thumb... you can unclip them and... tadaa.. you see a screw

yea... i know about the clips.... i only had them on the drivers side at front without any handle...

however on the passenger front and each side in rear i have the spring loaded handles that pull down from the roof and then fold back up to the roof... i cant manage to get those off...
