The hand pulls that are molded into the trunk each have a screw in them. You remove the screws then just pull the panel off towards the front of the car.If you have any further questions let me know. If I have answered to your satisfaction please remember to hit accept next to my name, as that's the only way the site will compensate me for my time.You can still ask follow up questions after hitting accept.
