Default Removing drivers side cargo area side panel

Has anyone ever removed this panel? I am planning on doing an install that requires running wires from the dash, back to the rear of the car. I know removing this panel is more than just the couple of phillips head screws. can anyone give me a step by step?

It's not hard, but several other trim pieces need to come off. Everything will be held by screws or press in (pull out) clips. Don't force anything until you are sure that all screws, bolts have been located.
Fold and tumble your rear seat forward after removing the rear door sill plate trim.

This info is cut and pasted from the 2004 shop manual.
