It should come down as a unit, not as a cover. Here is the procedure, try pulling down at front first. A note of caution, some retainers are stronger than what they retain, and it is possible that breakage may occur. While this is not necessarily specific with your situation, it is a general rule of thumb on trim work. Here is the procedure.
