Default Interior overhead light; how to remove plastic cover to clean bugs out?

I've tried every kind of way to get that clear plastic cover off. I've got dead nats caught inside the plastic cover, really annoying!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Do you have a sunroof, I'm guessing you don't because then it is really easy. If you look on the sides of the light (sides of the light facing the doors) there should be a small access hole to stick a flathead screwdriver into. While pushing a screwdriver in the access hole try and pull the light downwards. It is kind of difficult to do this without breaking one of the plastic pins because they are 13 years old now.

Superglue will put the little plastic prongs back on. Usually even more than once, if you line it up correctly while gluing. Ask me how I know...
