Hi everyone,

I'm new here and this is my 1st post. I purchased a backup camera system for my wife's car. I've had it for a while, so I can't return it. I assumed I would have more access to install the camera/sending unit to the license plate and wire to the backup light.(for power) I now found that is not the case. I'm hoping I could remove the large plastic panel by the trunk latch, which "should" provide me a more accessable area for work. Any advice on how to remove the plastic panel would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Looks like plastic pins

Thanks for the response. I guess it just needs a little brute persuasion.
