Removing buttons from upper steering wheel trim M3

Does anyone know how to do this? I want to be able to sand this piece properly and paint it to match my bottom repaired piece. I can't figure out how to get those F#$*&^% buttons out for anything!

Please don't tell me to search. I've searched. And searched. And searched. If the information is out there, I can't find it.

I thought it was just some screws on the back of the trim piece. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel to get to them.

I don't need to know how to get to trim piece off, I need to know how to get the buttons out of the trim piece. And not the button control modules in the back, the actual buttons.

Edit: here's a pic of the back of the upper trim where the buttons sit.
