Hi, don't give up yet....


It is being secured by 3 metal springclips each side, which you can access with a small flat blade screwdriver to press them back one by one.

Just take a very (!) close look at the outer edges of the light arrangement, there are tiny marks (small protrusion) that indicate where to stick the blade in between with the headliner.

Good luck!

... wheres the 3rd? In the tan part where the ultrasonics are housed?

Couldnt see any protrusionson that bit, only on the clear lens.

Reasons for removing are 2 fold.
1) attempt to get the boot opening button to work
2) wire in a hidden feed to run dashcam

Yes, should be and indeed you're right as I think there are nor protrusions except on the glass section.

Mine is a different version, having a storage place for sunglasses. When I open that, the 2 last clips are easily found and even better to access as on the glass part. Note that the headliner incorperates a plastic frame with slots in which the metal spring clips can be quite tight.

You just have to keep trying finding the exact spot where to put your blade. Sorry, can't find a picture this quickly to make it more visible.
