how to remount rear view mirror in 5th gen

I know that I don't seem like I know jack about cars by starting this but wanna make sure i don't jack my ish up. My rear view mirror came off and it looks like it mounts up above my interior lights and it seems i need to take off the trim around my lights to be able to remount it to the car. Do I just need a little screwdriver to pop off the trim "carefully" and then put the screw in and then put the mirror back in? And if so are there tabs in certain areas on the trim that i should look for with out breaking them off? Again I dont wanna jack my **** up my interior is nearly perfect except 2 minor flaws. Thank You in advance for any advise.

First off, you need to pop that dome light cover off with a mini screwdriver.
You will see two screws and you'll have to remove them.
Remove the dome light it should come right off.
Next, pull down on the front ceiling light trim, there are two clips on this near the windshield side and three hooks on the opposite side so facing the windshield, pull towards you. You may need to use some force.
There should be a base plate for the rearview mirror or if that came off with the mirror, then there should be three screws that were supposed to hold the mirror to the ceiling.
