Dash Handle Removal?

Has anyone ever replaced the handle that is mounted on the dash above the passenger side airbag? Mine was chewed up when I bought it and I need to replace it. Any idea on how to get it out of there?

pull your vents out, stick your fingers in those holes and you will be able to push the release tabs on either side and pull the handle out

The release tabs should be white. When I took mine out to replace the heater core, I had to use a screwdriver because I couldn't reach them with my fingers.

I think I see the white release tabs. Are they closest to the front of the dash? How exactly do you release them? I just don't want to break anything.

They damn sure don't pull out, I've tried I'm a pretty big ole boy and I had veins poppin outta my forehead pullin on one in a junkyard. My smartass buddy laughed the whole time. He then popped the vents out, pushed the tabs in with a screwdriver and the grab bar just fell out in the floor, in about 30 seconds. Now I know, after learning the hard way.
