My understanding is once the back seat it out. There are 4-6 plastic push ins that hold the deck in place. Disconnect and remove the speakers first, disconnect the wiring for the third brake light and it should pull forward and up. Randy said it was a pain, but doable.

I had it to the point where I started to pull the little plastic things out. I had nothing to get under the plastic pieces and tried to force it and the area around them started to tear. It was getting dark so I just put the seat back in and conditioned the seats instead.
Going to try a piece of banding material like is used to tie down mobile homes to see if I can get them out. I'll notch it to fit under the plastic pieces.

I find that I have to get creative sometimes with tool selection when removing the push-in fasteners. Normally, I would use the tool designed for this type of fastener which actually looks like a nail puller but sometimes use a pair of needle nose pliers to be able to grip the stem while prying upward. Other times they are in there so tight that I just cut the heads with a pair of diagonal cutters and spend the $0.69 for new fasteners.
