How to take boot floor pan out?

Does anyone know how to take out the boot floor pan in a E92?
I tried yesterday by undoing the 10 nuts and which I thought would just pull out but it felt like it was glued in as I felt some resistance?

I want to dremel a small ridge out so I can fit in an amp as at the moment it sits too proud because of the ridge. But I just want to see underneath that I wont hit/screw into anything

This is the similar pan I am talking about wanting to remove

According to the BMW TIS, you have to remove panels underneath the car too - Central to the car, 6 screws and "guide"
- 1 screw at the lower back wheel right hand arch mud shield
- 4 screws at right hand rear cover between bumper and wheel arch, but being a 335, you may not have these.

Says to replace seals on the 4 rear bolts of tray on refitting.

Probably a good idea anyway. When I collected my car, as part of the "this is how it works" overview, I was advised not to use the underfloor storage area for anything that needs to stay cool. Apparently a customer had put chocolate in there, only to find a sticky mess at jouney's end. I'd guess it's a summer problem, but amps need a cool location.

There goes my idea for a oem look on the back of the seat or under the boot seems to be the only option
