How to reach rear ballast?

Hi All,

I have a 2005 X2 and one of my rear ballast pumps is having issues. I got a new impeller to try first but I have a sneaking suspicion the pump just given up the ghost. My issue is that I can't figure out how to get the carpeted panel out of my way. I unbolted and removed the black plastic wall that separates the the compartment with the tank in it from the engine bay. Then I pulled the three screws holding in the panel that is ultimately covering the pump. I was able to slide it left and right but just couldn't figure out a way to twist, pull, bend, whatever, to get it out. I have dug around on line and found a couple of 'how to...' guides but none of them are my model year. In one it looks like there is a way to drop the floor of the compartment but I am not seeing how to do that on mine. Can anyone give me some guidance?
