I took off the lh trim as well. Not sure if I needed to at the time, but it just sort of came off in the struggle.
If I remember there are three push on bayonet type clips on each side. It's a case of being firm and gentle at the same time.
You'll feel it starting to give as you exert more pulling pressure.
I also think that I could get more purchase once the left hand trim was removed.
It was a bit scary and got to the break or bust level.
In retrospect unless I really wanted to use Parking mode I'd stick with the cigarette lighter socket.

Thanks - I've decided to run the 12v plug instead. As you say, parking mode is the only loss but I've just tested parking mode as mine has a battery too and it kicked in ok. Fingers crossed!

Thanks again for the tips, hopefully be helpful for others too.
