How do you clean your oven ceiling (heating element and light)

Any tips for cleaning the oven ceiling? I have to poke my head in, look up, try to reach through the heating element and scrub with a stainless steel sponge. Also, the oven light is smattered with stains, i think just use a slightly abrasive sponge and gently scrub away?

I recently discovered that the side racks of my oven can be removed (for once i actually rtfm!)so I can clean the walls unencumbered. I can't tell you how excited I was to find this out. Previously I had scrubbed through the racks but felt that a lot of the stains were eluding me.

I would rather not use that Mr Muscle stuff. Now that my walls are clean, I want to know if there're any secrets to getting to the ceiling. I can't find anything on youtube specifically about the top, and the oven manual doesn't say that the heating element can be removed.
