    How To Take Off Carbon Engine Bay Trim

    I was trying to remove the rear X brace for painting and I wasn't sure how to remove the carbon trim.
    There are three bolts above the carbon trim that hold on another piece of trim but it looks like the bolt just goes through.
    There is nothing on Youtube on how to remove the trim or the X brace.
    Any help or video would be appreciated

    There are 6 bolts on each side that need to be removed from the upper black piece before you can remove the CF trim . lower are T30 torx , upper are H5 hex [ 12 bolts total]

    Also you need to detach the hood shocks near the carbon fiber

    Thanks all,
    It seemed that the upper H5 just went straight through, I will try to go back and see what happens
