1999 Dodge Ram

I broke the dome light between the sun visors in my friends pickup. I went and bought the part from dodge but I cannot get the housing around the dome lights to pop down. It also hold like your car door opener etc. Its a big hard housing. I have clicked the buttons that loosen it but it still will not drop down. I'm afraid of forcing it. What do I need to do besides released the two buttons on the top. Thank you for your help, Mellie
