yestarday I went to LOWES to look for "trunk key hole plug". gcobalt05 told me that he got it from there. I spent 1 hr looking for it with no luck after that I asked for help and the guy who knows every item in LOWES told me that he has never seen anything like this. I went to pep boys after that and they cudnt help me as well, any ide where I can fint this trunk key hole plug

Yep. to remove it (try to do it on a hot day) or u can use a heat gun on it. basiclly just start at the top or bottom and start to pull it off. once you have the majority of it off you can use some goo gone to remove the rest of the glue residue.

exactly! (warm day helps for sure) hairdryer too. if you use a heat gun be careful not to hold it to long in one spot.
for me it was easy to start on the bottom, farthest from the front of the car. peeling up and towards the front.
regardless, your fingures will hurt. goo gone to clean up ftw, then wax the area asap.
