Anyone know how to remove the trunk lock cylinder?

Has anyone had to remove the trunk lock cylinder on the Charger yet? I'm going to add the blackout panel decal to the rear decklid, but I need to get the lock out so I can get the decal behind the trim ring. It looks like it is held in place with a spring clip from behind, but I don't know how to disengage the cylinder from the actual latch mechanism. Anyone have any experience doing this?

Thanks for the help.

just checked the 2005 lx manual i have and it didnt cover it AT ALL!! At least i couldn't find it. Call or stop by your local dealership....they should be able to give you 5 minutes of support.

Thanks, PaCharger. I had my car in for service today (nav radio replacement), and they showed me how to get the cylinder out. Really easy, just a few clips and pins. I'll have to post pics once I get the decal on. By the way, your ride looks great! Magnesium truly is the fastest color...

Well, it takes a little more than a pin or two.. I just replaced my trunk lock with a camera. I'll be posting some pics on a new thread a little later.

Why do you want a camera looking backwards? Everything behind us is small and getting smaller.....course you could save the images to document your kills...

i'd love to know what camera you went with and how it turned out, that's a hot idea.
