Default 408: how do I remove this piece of interior, please?

I took out 2 screws.. One at the top rear and one at bottom front.. It won't budge.. Are there more?. Thanks.

My memory says that those are the only solid fixings but itís also glued to the wheel arch so youíll need to prise it off and then glue it back. There may also be a hidden fixing inside the ashtray, but I donít think so. You may not need to remove the whole thing if youíre only aiming to install a lap seat mounting point.

Thank you, Roger. I can see now that the lap belt fitting will not need this part's removal. I was also removing it to run a 12v line to the boot for the fuel pump since the original wiring harness disappears under this part but it's probably not worth removing it just for that.
