    Hi Brian,

    The answer is really 'just pull'

    That bottom black plastic panel is held in by plastic lugs. Start on the side that the handle isn't on and pull.

    Using a soft but strong rod to help lever is how the manual (service) says to do it. There example was a screwdriver wrapped in tape.

    Once you get the first couple off, you will work out how the rest come. There is 11 lugs.

    To put it back on, just line it up and PUSH!!

    Camera? I've no doubt missed an earlier post.
    Are you installing a rear view back-up camera?

    I am not now, there are no wires back there that are ready for a camera, and as some people have said, that there is no immediate plug-in for a camera either.
