Default help! how to remove headliner?

Hi,

does anyone know how to remove the headliner so i can unscrew the sharkfin?
I had my roof vinyl-ed but they didn't take off the sharkfin and vinyl-ed around it instead. turned out pretty bad, i could see the roof around the shark fin.
It would also help if someone can tell me how to remove the vinyl off the roof. They said that if i take off the sharkfin and the vinyl, they'll re-do the roof for me.

Thanks!

the headliner is glued on, its pretty hard to remove and even harder to put back in...i had my replaced at the dealer, took 2 guys and a specialist 2 days to do, the hard part is putting it back in cuz when they installed it in the factory, they would put the headliner in before the windshield

You can access the shark fin through the rear dome lamp.
