Default Headliner Replacement

Weather has broken so I am about to replace the sagging headliner in my '96 Caravan Sport (SWB). Question is how do I remove the map light surround as well as the ceiling mounted light surround (without breaking them. I have a Haynes but that is no help and the online headliner replacement video does not address the interior light assemblies.

I am not sure in your 96

but the light in the middle front of my 02 Jeep just pulls out, little clips hold it in, and the overhead console on my 06 van, just pulls down too, little clips hold it in as well

so I would guess just some force would get it off, but i am not sure on your 96

Open the transmitter bin door Overhead Console .
Remove screw holding the overhead console to the headliner. With the screw removed the console is retained by one engagement tab located inside the sunglasses storage bin.
Open the sunglasses bin door.
Press the retaining tab which is located directly under the door latch.
Lower rear of console away from headliner.
Pull console rearward to disengage clips holding front of console to roof armature and lower console.
Disconnect wire connectors from back of CMTC and reading lamps. Ensure the connectors lock tabs are fully depressed before disconnecting.
Remove overhead console.
Reverse the preceding operation.

No overhead bin, just have the forward Map Lights (push on lens to operate) and I assume that I need to pry the lenses (2) out and will find a retaining screw for the surround. Also have the mid cabin ceiling light and again assume I need to pry the lens out and then can remove the surround. Please tell me if I am wrong.
