Help with trunk parts removal

Post by waituntilthebeep »



Hey there... Been trying to remove lower trunk panels from my 2012 Wing and can't seem to figure out how to get them loose. The "manual" is about 6 years behind the times and shows popping off a trim strip that doesn't exist and removing screws that holds the 3 lower panels. This generation of Wing has no such trim. There are 3 screw inside the trunk along the sides that come out and release the side of the lower side panel. The lower center panel seems to be the lynchpin to the whole mess and I can't find any screws anywhere that hold it in and it for sure isn't simply clipped on. I need all of those 3 lower panels off so I can do some lighting stuff. Great plans thwarted by an out of date manual. Anyone ventured into that part of the beasty?

I answered my own question with brute force and tenacity! Actually, it was careful prying and removing every thing that got in the way. Here is the video answer to the question...
