Question Back seat squeak

So 19,000 miles later on my 2016 Canyon and a Chinese water torture-like squeak developed in the backseat area. I was finally able to isolate it to the large plastic panel that is behind the seats that covers the rear cab wall area under the rear window. It seems like theres some loose plastic tabs or fasteners around where the lower standoffs are that project through the plastic for the rear seats that secure this plastic panel. I gave it a shot with the heal of my hand and it seemed to catch for awhile but as soon as I hit some rough road you can hear it again (left and right side).

The panel is secured tight at the edges/corners, seems to be just loose in the area I described.

Anybody know how to get this panel off? Or am I destined for a visit to the dealer.

So annoying, but other than that the truck has been good to me (well, not including the Apple CarPlay but I'll blame Apple for that one...)

UPDATE
Just got back from the dealer, turns out it was the headliner. Apparently there was a loose fastener by the rear domelight that the headliner gets secured to. Was driving the mechanic crazy, but he was able to troubleshoot it to that area after a few trips to a construction zone (squeak was really bad going over rough road).

So props to Van Buren GMC in New Hyde Park NY for fixing it!
