Anyone know how to remove the large circle thing? I want to drill a hole in the center to install a switch for some custom trunk lights and to be able to switch the lights on and off. Couldn't find anything online.

Thanks I'm advance

Maybe this diagram will help?
You'll want to buy a plastic fastener removal tool and you can find a set on Amazon for around $10. I'm sure any auto parts store will sell them also.

Looks like I have to remove the whole trim piece and not just the circle piece

And the back seat, if I'm reading that page correctly. Sorry. 😕

Looks like I'll just relocate the switch, even though that place was the perfect location.

Or get a different style switch. Thank you for the help.

Here is a thread where the poster discusses removing the cargo trim panels. Rear seats: says to remove rear seat cushion but the rear seat back rests can stay in place.

I've removed and reinstalled my entire rear seat before and I found removing/installing the seat cushion part was fairly easy. The seat cushion sits directly over top the gas tank.

I actually came across this post in the past, but totally forgot about it. I might just drill a hole where I don't have to remove the whole trim.
