Rear speaker panel removal...?

Can anyone tell me the PROPER way to remove the plastic panel in the rear that covers the rear speakers? I know you remove the hatch strut and the three plastic push-pins, then you have to pop the snap in retainers out BUT the rear retainer is a slide-in that in 4 cars now I have not been able to remove a single one without the clip breaking free from the panel.... it's just glued and I glued two back with no problem and the other two I used velcro tabs so I could remove it again in the future easily. There's NOTHING in the GM service manual on how to do it.... any help from knowledgable people would be great
