Rear hatch interior trim removal?

This is relatively easy as everything is clipped on after removing a few screws under the 2 removable plastic pieces and the center warning triangle door. Just give it a good yank from the lower portion closer to the hatch closing switch. The steel spring clips are completely reuseable. No plastic clips to break. But be careful of the light and closing switch wires, as those will be holding the weight of the trim panel after the steel spring clips are released. Ideally you'll have someone supporting the weight of the panel while the clips are released. Then you would unclip the wires before taking the whole panel off. The upper portion of the panel is also held in by the same steel spring clips.

Install by aligning the steel clips and use your palm to give it a good whack to re-seat the clips.

Rear latch just stopped working in our 2010 Q5 last night and I need to get this trim panel off now as well. Tried lubricating it but it's not coming back to life. Reviewing this screen shots here this looks pretty straightforward but wanted to confirm a few thing with anyone that's done this before if possible...

- do you start the pull off from side closest to the latch (bottom) or the side closest to where the hatch meets the roof?

- can the light and door close switch be popped out and disconnected before pulling the trim piece off?

- the light and door close switch are the only wires that need to be disconnect correct? I don't need to worry about the taillight wiring under the two side panels as they stay attached to the frame and not the trim panel?

Lastly, does anyone have the correct part number for the replacement trunk latch? Looking at ECS I think it's 8R0827505 but if anyone can confirm it would be really helpful.
