Sportcross rear strut replacement - interior removal

Anybody have instructions/photos of how to remove all the trim and interior panels in the hatch area to get to the strut mount bolts at the top of the rear towers?

Thanks!

THANKS!

Some of the latter steps missing, but hopefully that becomes self explanatory once you get that far.

I just did this today. The instructions were pretty straight forwards. I was stumped by one of the child seat anchors. Took me a while to realize the plastic cover on them had to be pried off.

Sorry guys for never finishing it. I have to take it apart again soon to replace the rear struts, so maybe I can knock it out then.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.
