How do you remove the trim pieces ON THE HARDTOP that cover the lockin

Recommended Posts

I am trying to update my 996 hardtop with the latest screw-style locking pins so I can mount it on my 997 (also just updated with the new hardtop mounts). However, I'm not sure how to remove the plastic trim pieces that cover the locking pin mounts. They sort of look like speaker grills. I see metal clips on the underside of deck, but, I think those are for removing the mounts themselves. I did a bunch of searching and came up with this post:

However, the piece that I am trying to remove does not seem to be included in this diagram. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jason

It was the clip. There were a couple of plastic tabs that just pulled out but the clip was the final one. If you do remove it be careful not to loose the clip and the metal washer as it has a tendency it just pop off. Here's a photo of the trim piece removed:
