I dont think you need to remove the back panel. You should be able to axcess them from the trunk. However, to get the back panel out of my 98 you need to drop the seatbacks and there are 2 or 3 black trim bolts like 8 mm i think, remove those. You will also need to remove the middle tail light cover. There are trim screw on either side. Just pop out the centers with a small screwdriver. You will need to pull the panel towards you to get it loose because ther are 2 plastic holders underneath the panel that need to come loose. I dont remember if you neet to remove the side bolster or not but if you do its pretty easy. Dont forget to unplug the middle taillight either. If i am remenvering right thats relly all there is to it. Hope it helps.

Hey Thanks a lot for the info. However, the side bolsters are the "cushions" on the sides of the back seats right? because i did all u sugested but i couldn't take those "cushions" off the sides, I thought that they were going to rip off or something like that since they are hooked to some metal pieces. That's the only thing blocking me from removing the panel. Once again thanks and I would appreciate if you could tell me how to take them off. :liebe011:

The bolsters are held in by a 14 mm bolt at the bottom of the pillow. If you look down the crack at the bottom of the pillow where it meets thre bottom seat cusionyou will see the bolt i'm talking about. I used a 1/2 inh drive socket with a 6 inch extension to reach it. Its in pretty tight but it will come. Once the bolt is out lift the bolsyer up and out. The top sits over a hook so you have to go strait up to remove it. That should be all there is. Let me know.
