Next automotion shade to work on

Now that I've finished the work on the two shades on the left side of the 2016 AI, I want to turn attention to the other one that is not working. It's a shade in one of the rear doors.

I don't anticipate a lot of problems with the shade itself, but I don't immediately see how to remove the valance on the door so that I can get to the shade. I really don't relish the idea of breaking something right off the bat! Has anybody removed one of these before? How is it attached?

Thanks,
Lynn

Yes, I took one of these panels off to make adjustments to the shade limits. You will need trim removal tools that you can get at HF or AMZ and a strong conviction to pop the panel off. There are several and some are quite stout. I think I may have googled how to remove the panel and found some video or information on the web. Good Luck

Ok, so there are plastic trim fasteners? I didn't see any heads, so I guess that part is somehow hidden.
