The plastic center strips slide out. There are 3 or 4 rivets beneath the strips. Drill them out but be careful and don't apply a lot of pressure on the drill unless you like ventilated head liners.
...On a related note, how do you rivet them back in? Pop rivets? Does headliner need to come out? One of my roof rails has a rivet loose and I need to re-secure it.
