r50 facelift dash removal

Ok so i need some help. I've read everywhere to remove the 4 torx screws and then lift out the dash. But it will not budge and i feel like i'm going to break something. Is there a hidden hook or clip?!?! Also all the guides i've seen are for 5 piece pre-facelift minis, are 3 piece dashboard tops different to remove?

Thanks in advance!

That pretty must just reiterates what I've said, 4 screws and pull it off, I'd really like some more Info from somebody that's removed the black top section from a face lifted dash
