Remove rear trunk trim

Hi all, trying to diagnose a rattle and I think I’ve narrowed it down to the rear passenger trim area. I believe this is where the amplifier/sub is located, and tapping it seems to reproduce the rattle noise I’m getting on uneven roads. Anyone know how to safely remove this piece? Is it only held in by clips? Included a picture and it’s a circled piece.

It's pretty easy to remove.
1. Pull up on trim by bumper, it's held in with snaps.
2. Remove the floor boards
3. Pull up on the side piece that was supporting the floor boards, it's held in with snaps
4. With a flat head screw driver pop the one press snap in the corner
5. Pop the other press snap holding the bottom side cubby piece, then just pull up on it
6. Then pull on the passenger trim area, it's just snapped in. I usually press in the top piece of the passenger trim because I only want to unsnap the bottom piece

Any issues putting this large trunk side trim piece back on, seems to not hold well when meets the floor trim near level of seat cushions
