    There is a bit of a 'haze' under the hatch glass near the 3rd tail brake light.

    It seems to be covered by interior trim.
    Is the interior trim hard to remove?
    What is the best to learn how to remove that trim without breaking the interior clips or damaging interior pieces?

    Any diagrams/manuals?

    Mine's nice and shiny. Dealer cleaned it under warranty, no charge :) But then they charged me 2 grand for an oil change :(

    Our cars have that too, the glass and the foam under the carpeting back there detiriorates allowing the carpet to pull up.

    The only fix I know is to pull the rear shelf, but i don't have the DIY on that.

    I was going to remove my rear shelf trim piece this weekend to get at the 3rd light, as mine also has grime/haze/dust. wWuld be interested in tips on getting at this area of the car without damaging the trim pieces.

    Just remember, anytime you screw around with the carpet on the rear, there's a better than 50/50 chance it won't stay down any more.
