rear dome light assembly disassembly tutorial

Hi Everyone,
I am one of those people who really dislikes the look of the stock model 3 headliner. To soothe monkey brain I am having it professionally wrapped in alcantara ("dinamica 8630" for anyone wondering :) - I found the name on TSMC).

My problem is that not a single one of the options include an OEM looking solution to the ugly color on the dome lights/coat hangers/seatbelt assembly. I then realized that I could probably dye the plastic as seen in this video -

However, in order to safely dye them, I have to isolate the parts which need to be dyed so as not to mess up any electronics. There was no info online so incase anyone else is as mentally deranged as I am. I'll be leaving this shittily filmed video here as a guide for how to remove the rear dome light cover.
