Question Need help replacing rear interior trim piece

Thanks to DannO, I now have a nice clean replacement piece for my coupe. Not sure what it's called... can't find it in ETK and I'm too lazy to go downstairs and get the part number right now. It's the rear partition piece with the hole in it that the CD changer sits in.

I need to replace this piece, but am looking for directions. I'm not sure where to start in the rear. I see that it has 3 or 4 white clips at the top which would be made easier with Ron's tool, but I'll have to try and work them out with needlenoses.

I'd imagine I start by removing the cargo cover / net. Then what?

Any help is appreciated!

Adam

P.S. Reason for replacement is that I use an aftermarket CD changer, which works fine, but it's door opens on the wrong side for it to fit in the hole properly. I was annoyed with it and decided to bolt it to the partition. That worked fine, but now I'm in 'make sure this thing is as clean as I can make it' mode and what the holes gone and the changer worked into the hole where it should be.

Hey Ron...

The link you sent me has an awe inspiring 2500 images loading whne I open it. There's no text on the page, so finding anything that begins with Trunktrim seems to be a monumental task.

Am I supposed to be at this thumbnail gallery to find what you're talking about? Can you give me a hint as to the page's location (as in row 620, column 2)



Thanks!
Adam

It use to be an alphabetical by height list. Looks like Dale (webmaster and owner) thumb nailed it with last in being on top.

Found it...

I just did a 'view source' on the page, did a find for your keyword, copied the url for the image(s) and pasted them into the browser. No problem at all.

Thanks!
Adam

Exclamation two screen names...

I have no idea. I guess I created one a long time ago, and since created a new one. I need to delete one so I stop logging in under different names. It's confusing me!
