Question about 2008 Toyota Camry Solara
The scuff plate and rear seat back and cushion has been removed but I cannot find screws/bolts or obvious clips holding the rear side panel on. I need access to replace a switch that I hope will remedy a radio that fades in and out.

I just replaced my left rear brake light on my 2005 Sienna. I followed the manual directions and removed the two metal bolts from the tail light cover. However the assembly did not come off. I could open it a little and it appeared to be bolted from the inside. I looked online but didn't find an answer. I had already gotten pulled over and I didn't want to go to the dealer so I pulled on the assembly a little harder applying even pressure to the top and the bottom and it popped loose. I didn't yank it. There are two metal pegs that have a little lip on them and thats where you are getting the resistance. Hope this helps.

I solved this issue by using a miniature ~6" Teflon coated crowbar/nail puller, and pried around the edge of the trim until the "catches", which held the trim in place slowly released.
At that point I was able to pull the trim off.

Slide the plastic cover off the tailgate ******** the passenger side to reveal a 10mm bolt.
Remove the bolt and the strap/
Using a flat prying instrument, remove the center trim section one the inside of the tailgate above the window.
Grab the top edges of the side trim sections on the inside of the tailgate and pull down to remove.
Using a flat instrument, pry at the bottom edge of the tailgate main trim panel, it is held on with about 12 plastic pop-in fasteners so it will take several 'pops' before it is released.
Behind that there is a metal access cover the width of the tailgate, held on by ~5x pop in fasteners and ~10x 10 mm bolts. Remove the bolts and pop the panel loose, it will hang by the wiring so support it while you do your camera work :)
The license plate trim panel, should you need to remove it, requires remoaval of the license plate.
Then remove ~3x 10mm bolts from the top of the panel, accessed from the inside.
Using long needle nose pliers compress the pop-fasteners holding the lower corners of the license plate trim panel on, being careful not to let it drop and slide down the vehicle, scratching the paint :)

Testimonial: "Very helpful. thanks"
SOURCE: remove passenger side mirror
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Sit in back seat passenger side. Remove panel which is on top which is below rear window, same panel where seat belt goes into panel at top. You will need to remove #2 Phillips screws which hold panel in place. Screws are hiding behind seat belt front cover where belt goes down in panel, under cup holder which allows arm rest cover to lift off and one more right on left side of head rest in corner. Remove panel. You will see switch which is in vertical position. If for any reason you want to by-pass switch, just unplug switch. Radio will still work in standard mode. The amp sound will not increase in performance when top is down and sound will not be as sharp.
