Default clearing the trunk reflector

how do you guys go about reaching the screws that hold the trunk reflector in place? did you use an extended socket wrench or something else?

if I recall correctly, there are 2 - 10mm nuts that you need to take off on both sides, and then 4-5 clips that you just pry of
