How do I remove the back trunk panel on 197

Guys I need your help, I wand to remove the most aft piece of carpeted panel in the trunk of my 197 but I am stumped. I need to get at the bolts to tighten the aft pull bar as it is slightly loose.

If you are talking about the vertical piece, there should be several screws along the top edge of the panel. They are typically not visible as they're somewhat buried in the carpet. Once these are out the panel can be lifted out

If you start at one end and sort of pry the panel away from the hull a bit, you'll see where it won't push away--screw location. Just work your way across (gently of course). I think there are four or five on mine. . .cant' recall exactly.

I just had mine off the other day while replacing my fuel pump. I pulled off six screws. It's a fairly flexible plastic piece that I had to bend to get it in and out. But as others have said, the screws are hidden by the carpet. You should have no problem.

Everything worked out great, I still can't believe how loose the pull bar was. Most of the washers were just spinning when you touched them.
