I tried removing the rear door panels tonight and found it a bitch to pull off the panel I tried with a panel remove tool too, but I didn't want to yank/pry too hard in fear of damaging something. Anyways in your article (vaboom) you say the rear is the same as the front except for "this peice" (its pictured) and has two yellow clips. What is "this peice"? And did you find pulling the panels off a bitch?

The piece Im refering to is near the end of the door. Its a triangular piece. Since the car is new, the clips are really stiff. Yank, worst that can happen is your break a clip or it seperates from the panel.

Careful not to crack the panel. Ya dont need a panel tool, just slip you fingers in and pull towards you.

Ive been installing for years, so no it was not even remotely hard to remove the panels.

For the record, these yellow clips that differentiate the rear door panels from the front door panels on Vabooms Hatchback do not exist on the Sedan model.

My rear doors were identical to the front doors.
Good point-out. So there are some differences between the sedan and hatch.

But inside the panel, its all the same (Im about 99% sure on that).
