Question How to replace baseboard radiator cover?

I just can't figure out how to do this without damaging the fins and piping.

I am replacing the old paneling in my finished basement and installing wainscotting/beadboard. There are existing hot water fin-style baseboard radiators that were installed after the paneling. I need to remove and replace the baseboard radiator covers. I can't figure out how to remove these without damaging the fins and piping. I can't even understand how they were put together. Is there some trick to this? Doesn't seem like it should be too hard to disassemble the covers and install new ones around it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Baseboard covers

It seems like each manufacturer has his own way of holding these things on. With most, you can push down on the top of the front, & pull out at the bottom. Feel or look along the top & bottom for support brackets.
