REMOVAL OF BACK DOOR PANEL (TRUNK DOOR)

2005 BMW X3

Interior problem
2005 BMW X3 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

I'm trying to remove the trunk door inside panel to get to the reverse lamps. There's the two screws in the inside handles and the two on top of the panel, near the door's locking hook. Are there more screws somewhere or is it just a question of knowing how to pull the panel off?

I don't wanna break the panel so all knowledge will be appreciated. If removing the panel is not the only way, knowledge on both removal of the panel and how to change the lamps in another way are welcome, thanks in advance.

Sometimes you have to release the screws and get behind the panel and "pop" the plastic fasteners loose.
