just remove the plastic push pins with care you do not want to break these if you can help it , they should pull straight out

yes, I was under the impression the struts were mounted way up high in the wheel wells, like the older models, and I would have to pull all of the interior side trim. Turned out, as you said, I only had to pop the 1 floor trim piece! Cake! Thank you for your reply!
