That's a toughy I will admit.
It's snapped into place. Once it's in place, it's a dickens removing it.
If you do; you probably will end up breaking the plastic tabs that hold it in
place.

To refinish it is easy. No different than you would with regular wood.
Formbys has an excellent website on how to refinish.
Heck, they even have Spray Lacquer and Spray Polyurethane
