Removing trunk trim on 2011 Sorento

Hi there,

Both of my knobs on each side of the cargo area that hold the cargo net have lost their nuts into the rear trim. I've tried to remove the trim, starting at the very back (called the transverse trim, I think), but it won't come off. I found these steps on the internet (from, but are they all necessary?

Basically it boils down to:

1. Remove the second row seat assembly.
2. Remove the third row seat assembly.
3. Remove the second row seat belt lower anchor.
4. Remove the third row seat belt lower anchor.
5. Remove the partition trim.
6. Remove the rear transverse trim.
7. After loosening the mounting screws, then remove the luggage side trim.

I can't just remove the transverse trim and then the big plastic trims around the sides? Is there another way to fish the nuts out?
