I know you edited your post to tell us they just popped off. But if memory serves me correct...I think I removed the covers once and it was sort of uncurling a paper clip to use as a "hook". I inserted it thru one of the holes in the speaker cover and pulled...I did this several times around the circumference of the cover...and this gave access to the screws that hold the speakers to the roof.

If this wasn't on the e39 Touring...perhaps it was on my old e34 Touring? Anyway...that is the memory that seems to be sitting on the edge of my memory.

EDIT: instructions (click link) & pics from BMW TIS (
