Secret to removing these led light covers?

Anyone know the best way to take these led light covers down for cleaning?
Don't want to break them.

Use one of those plastic trim removal tools and I bet there's two tabs on each side that you have to release. (You should be able to see them with the light on.)

Thanks, I've tried the last suggestion in that thread but really can't mine to bow pushing on the ends.

I'll have to try again.

Finally solved:

The key is to press up firmly on the clear lens. This will flex the long sides out where the clips are.

On some of mine you could press on the center on the clear lens, and hear a pop when one side released.

On others I had to slide a thin piece of metal (letter opener, etc) in between the cover and the ceiling and press on one end of the clear lens while twisting gently on the metal.

When that end came free I'd pull down gently with my fingertips, and do the same to the other end.

Mine are all now clear, hope this helps someone else.

I told my wife when we stopped seeing Styrofoam everywhere we will know it's time to trade it in on a new one. I think we will have this trailer a very very very long time.
