im pretty sure they use the double sided tape stuff, no drilling. If you really dont wanna risk it then go to the Ford place and theyll take it off.

Default black vinyl

if your talking bout the black vinyl easiest way is to heat it up with heat gun or blow dryer and start peeling back i put the black vinyl on mine and some one messed with it at the parking lot at work so i tried to take it off to place a new piece of vinyl down but that glue is tough to get off the car i ended up just buying a magnetic one that looks awesome and fits well you can prob get it off with goo gone or something else but i guess i was just impatient

I am sure they do NOT use double sided tape on the deck lid panel, because I looked at mine and it is flush with the decklid itself, I think it uses the bolt locations from the faux gas cap to bolt onto the decklid.

Take it to Ford to have them remove it, just incase something fuzzy happens.

-Pretty sure it DOES use double sided tape (just as the faux gas cap is attached with)! Look up the installation instructions.

I think people usually use heat combined with fishing line behind the panel to loosen/break the tape bond. If you remove it without damaging it and want to sell it PM me! ;-)

Note....you will need to buy a new faux gas cap as it it's permanently attached to the deck lid panel and isn't the same as the stock non-decklid panel GT cap (panel is flat...bare trunklid is curved).

I just installed the factory decklid trim panel on my 2011 GT. It IS held on with double stick tape. There is a strip at the very top, the very bottom, and a circle piece the size of the gas cap behind the gas cap. There are no bolts. There are tabs that go into the trunk lid, but those are for alignment only.

How much of a PITA was it to remove the faux gas cap...and how did you go about doing it? (heat and fishing line?).

I believe the title of the thread is deck lid panel. I have the pedestal spoiler.

I believe there are no holes for the deck lid panel (yet you seem to be concerned that there are holes like for the spoiler) thus the confusion.

Thumbs up decklid panel

Just received a custom decklid panel from American Muscle, made by MMD.
This is for my 2014 Mustang Conv. The instructions from MMD sez to remove the two torx screws inside the trunk, then use pry tools to left up the decklid it's held in place by 12 clips. Removing the clips with softsided interior tools, then install 3M adhesive tape to install the new decklid. You can find instructions on American Muscle website. Rick

RickD2xNE is correct. If you don't like the look of that hideous fake fuel cap panel, you can order from CJponyparts. They have a couple of the replacement types that should make you happy. I hated mine, plus the ugly factory panel had a gap from the panel to the trunk lid. Ford warrantied it, but the new one was almost as bad as the original. But RickD2 is correct about the torx screws and clips.
