996.1 Cabrio Roll Bar Cover Removal

Greetings! Second time owner, first time poster!

Does anyone know the screw locations to remove the complete roll bar cover trim piece, just behind the rear seats? The 996.2 version has one screw under each roll bar port hole flap, and one screw through a centered rear tab on the back of the cover, when you pull the backside carpet out with the soft top in service position.

On my 996.1 It's a different design! I've flipped the rear seats down, removed the two Phillips head screws and slid that carpeted panel down to clear free of the front lip of the cover piece. This revealed 2 screws, one at each corner on the newly uncovered front lip. I removed those, Put the roof into service position, popped the 4 trim plugs that hold the carpet to the back of the assembly, and removed the one screw from the center tab. The piece will still not lift out and I cannot find any additional hardware holding it in. Do the torx bolts holding the physical box of each roll bar assembly go all the way through and secure the plastic trim too?

Any experienced insight would be appreciated!
