    Easy. You need to remove the inner trim on the boot lid by pulling it, but be careful. It is only held on with push clips, they are only 20p ish from vxl so I would advise you buy a few spares as you will almost certainly break one or two. the chrome strip is held in by 4 8mm (iirc) nuts. Undo these and then remove from boot lid, you will also need to disconnect the boot latch wire.
