Rear interior light assembly removal

Tried to remove my rear interior light assembly up on the headliner but just couldn't figure it out. I can pry the clear lens off pretty easy but I want to remove the whole assembly from the headliner so I can put some sound deadner behind it because ever since I upgraded my sound system it rattles like crazy and is driving me nuts. I know guys have dropped the whole headliner to dynamat or sound proof it so someone's gotta know. Oh, I have a crew cab
Thanks

I found this on another site, maybe it will help.

I just dropped my headliner from the front to install cab lights.

Removed pillar handles, 2 bolts each.
Removed visors, mine have wires for lighted mirrors. Once the mounts were loose I pryed the headliner out of the rubber seal and stuck my hand up in the corners to un-clip the wires. There are small connectors with detents that you need to push in.

I do not have a moon roof but do have the two tray eye glass holder console with the dome light. The plastic console part just pulls straight down, it's held in by tabs. Then you will have a white plastic mount for the dome light with two connectors. This is held in by two screws.

Make sure your seat head rests are up, they will help rest the headliner on when it comes down.

I then used my finger to pop the headliner out of the rubber seals along the roof.

Just becareful, the headliner is formed and can crease if bent.

Do the reverse to reinstall.

Not sure if there is enough room between the headliner and roof for a speaker. Might want to see about installing in the overhead console.

Here is another post with info:

I had thought about the Dynamat while I had my headliner out, but did not have any and need to get it back together to go on road trip. The roofs are pretty thin (like the rest or the body) but the head liner itself is like ~1/2" foam and really seams to deaden the sound pretty good. One thing too, the center of the headliner is stuck to the roof by a couple of pretty strong magnets that are embedded in the the foam. So you would have to not cover that area with the Dynamat.
