I'm going to try to post step by step on the tear down so mabe it will help others who just want to remove a panel. Then I'll start the cutting. After you start that you are deffently commited and can't go back. The trunk stay will have to be removed so here is where you starty removing the four bolts

After removing the accent light ortrim from inside the trunk compartment you'll see screws holding the lower panel under the trim.

To remove the seat there are two bolts on each side of the seat that holds the handles on. Remove them and the seat willl slide out.
