Default 405 How do I remove the rear shelf ?

I'd like to remove the rear parcel shelf on the 405 to get better access to the fuel tank. I've removed the rear seats and unscrewed the parcel shelf across the front, but are there more fixings in the boot or hidden somewhere ?

The only other fixings on the rear shelf would be the cover for the fuel inlet pipe. the there is a speaker hanging below the shelf and also the boot lamp. It may be possible to remove the shelf by rotating it forward from the RH side about the petrol inlet pipe once the speaker and boot lamp are removed, but without removing the rear glass it may not be possible.

Thanks pnaleahy - after removing the speaker ( and disconnecting the speaker leads ) and disconnecting the boot lamp wires - and removing the filler hose and breather hose, it was possible to ease the shelf forward and then up a bit, then right out.
On the underside, on the black felt, is chalked "49" for chassis 4049.
