Re: Replacing Hood Release Handle & access??!!

How do I remove the trim piece or kick panel?
Any tips/advice is really appreciated! Thanks!
This thread seems to have a VERY general overview of the process, though no details on how to remove the trim (it likely just pops off after a screw or two): if you ever break your hood release handle, here ya go!
