Any tips on removing the license plate finisher trim on an Evora 400?

Based on a few other threads people seem to indicate there are 2 screws you can access from the face but on my car (e400) I don't see any.

I have pulled the inside of the boot apart but don't see anything there either.

Took out the lights, but that didn't help. They are just attached to the trim piece.

Brute force (like on other trim pieces) only resulted in warping the plastic.

I can't even find this part on the parts diagrams or service notes.

What am I missing?

It sure looks like part 19, and it shows two screws. Huh, very strange...

Someone else with an E400 will have to comment.

Thanks! I didn't think to look under lighting. Yes that is the part, but as you can see in my pictures, I don't see those bolts/screws.

Mine is just like yours. I'd pull the license plate lights and look there

Could be screwed in from inside the bumper. You can't see that from the boot the bumper has to come fully off to see behind that part.

Probably those Christmas tree push pins, good luck not breaking it

Looks like a bumper off operation.
When I remove the lights and feel up there I can't reach the posts that are holding it, but the on top of the 2 posts in the middle (which are loose) I can feel a screw hole. The outer ones must have a screw from the back side.

Convienent.
