I'm trying to follow these instructions for my similar TSX:

But I haven't found the proper way to remove the front ceiling light cover (the one with the garage door opener, sunroof power, lights, rearview mirror power, etc). I think it doesn't involve any screws, just a thin shim in the right spot.
