Look under the trunk carpet, mine is in this location. You can see some of my pictures here

Another noob here.

The carpet doesn't seem easy to lift. Can I just slip a trim removal into the edge gap and lift it up? I want to keep it as pristine as possible.

A second noob question: My M550 has a small battery in a compartment under the hood, on the right side. What is the function of this battery?

I hate to thread jack but can you provide some simple instructions for removing those truck trim peices? Clip locations, methods, things to watch out for, etc. I'm referring to the carpeted parts on either side if the trunk interior.Thanks!
