you talkin bout the rear deck? you gotta take the pieces around the rear window off, the rear seatbelts, head rest, the rear seat out, then you gotta pop the two tabs holding that is revealed when you take the seats out. then the things should just snap out its held on by clips

I didn't take the side pillers off. Just push down on the sides of the panel and pop the side panels out of it.
Then i bent the panel in the middle then was able to pull it.
There is also 2 clips in the middle that pop out.
The belts i didn't take off. I just worked around them when i did the speakers.

this is true, the plastics are good at bending :p

so when you did this, the rear deck didnt leave the car?

Nope. I just leaned over it to do the speakers.
