Remove panels in hatchback door

Hello

Does anyone know how to remove the panel on the hatchback. I want to run my backp camera wire by the license plate or license plate light I cannot see and bolts or clips. Do you just pull them towards you?

Thanks a bunch and happy birthday to all my fellow Marines.

You bet. First remove the bolts under the handles. There is one per side. After that just give a yank down and work your way around. There are clips under the panel. They are pretty sturdy as I removed it multiple times. Then just reverse

Where are you trying to put more insulation/ sound deadening material? The hatch already has insulation behind the side wall carpet over the rear shock towers to quell road noise.
