toilet paper holder/towel ring


I am redoing my bathroom and there were these ugly silver and brass fixtures(towel ring, towel bar, & toilet paper holder) that I wanted to get rid of. I got the towel ring & towel bar off, but it damaged some of the drywall. The toilet paper holder is on the side of the cabinet that holds the sink though. Anybody know how to get it off without damaging the wood? The top piece unscrews, and then there are 4 holes, through which I can see a metal plate that is attached to the cabinet. I can't seem to find any easy way to remove the brass piece that covers the metal plate though. Help!

The cover "may be" attached by a flush type headless screw. You would need a very small screw driver (micro). The screw is usually UNDER the cover, it would not be visible by looking at it from above, or from the side.

Well, the new ones i bought have a tiny screw like that on the underside, but there's no screw on the outside of these at all. I though it would snap off if i pried it with a flat head from inside one of the four holes, but it wouldn't and I just ended up damaging the drywall.
