Default '13 Factory trailer wiring harness installation

Bought my vehicle last fall and it did not have a hitch or harness. I got a hitch from a salvage yard dirt cheap and then bought a new harness and control module.

I got the hitch installed last fall since I use my bike rack a lot and was not concerned about the wiring until this spring when I go to pull my camper.

Well I sold a trailer of mine and now would like to install this, but am having a hard time finding any help removing the passenger side rear panel to access the factory pigtail to connect the module and harness (I ran it from the hitch into that rear area).

Anyway, any help or tricks to get the panel removed would be appreciated.

I’d ask over at club Touareg forum. All Treg, all the time.
Try not to be one of the “some of the people who are fooled all of the time.”
