Interior Roof Grab Handle Removal

How does one remove the grab handles on the roof above each door. I want to get mine cleaned and the chrome sent out for re-chroming.

My car does not have the chrome caps on the end of handle. It has the later style chrome rings.

Thanks.

The ends of the vinyl covering on the handles are flaps. Use a small screwdriver to peel them back to locate the screws.

Thanks Mike.

How do I get the chrome trim off. Can I pry it off using a flat blade screw driver?
