Rear shock upper mount?

Anyone know where to access the rear-shock upper mounts? Is it in the trunk area, or do I have to remove the backseat-back? Thanks..

Yes, you have to take off the lining in the trunk. There are plastic tabs all the way around, and you need an Allen wrench to take off the buckle that is on each side of the lump. Look for the DIY, it has pix.

That's the link. Be careful when you take off the plastic tabs though. We've just installed coilover on my E90 and we broke a tap because it was being stubborn=/
