NWS How to remove this panel/cover?

I'm trying to remove the following:

It's the plastic panel on the chassis right below the door, op the inside. I have 325i E36 from nov. 1993.

I'm guessing it has to be moved to the front of the car (to the right in this picture), dus it doesn't move. I've already tried with alot of power and I'm affraid it wil crack or something.

Thanx for the effort!

Ok, I've pulled it off. Now I'm thinking how to put it back on? Here's a picture of the situation right now. Offcource I'll be putting the carpet back first

wtf, did the clips stay stuck in there? they usually stay on the plastic panel when i take it off, i cant think off the top of my head how there put in on the plastic panel, but if all else fails, just take out the clips and put em back in the plastic piece, line up the clips with the wholes and stick em in

Talking

This explains alot. It was a mistery how to put back the plastic cover, now I know that the white clips should stay on the plastic. Once this is done, pressing is back should be easy I think.

I had to pull it with all my strength and was affraid it would break, but it came off undamaged

I've tried to pull out one white clip. It's still there. I'll have to try with a bigger tool :lol:
