Looky Looky Alfa 147 Tailgate Plastics Removal

Does anyone know how to take the rear plastics off the inner tailgate on the 04' 147 lusso? Firstly the boot stopped popping so i need to get under the plastics to change the motor but after removing all the screws/bolts it still won't budge. But dont want to push it too hard incase its just plastic clips on the back that i'll snap! Any help?

Re: Alfa 147 Tailgate Plastics Removal

Do a search, there are some photos somewhere. Assume you've removed 4 screws, 2 at the side and 2 in the "handgrips"?
I removed mine again at the w/e as the blasted washer pipe came out again, glued it in this time!
As for removing the trim start at the base/edge of the tailgate, some use a thin piece of wodd or screwdriver blade. Once you know where the clips are it's easier to prise them off. However take care, the trim is notoriously fragile!
