there doesn't appear to be any screws, it kind of looks like they would clip into the head liner, but i don't want to rip it down if thats not the case. and i wouldnt know where to get a new one

That's the thing with new cars, they're all plastic. Good thing he didn't actually need the oh shit handle. Might as well not even have it if its all plastic. This and the antenna base are 2 things Ford need to work on lol.
