Ok, that's what I thought, but I took the six screws out of the rubber boot plate and the plate won't come up, it's like it is sealed to the carpet and I don't want to mess the carpet up. (yes I am a woman trying to do a man's job lol) I didn't know if there was some trick to taking it out after removing the screws.
