I had begun to install Polk speakers this morning by trying to remove the front door panel. The first step after removing a couple of hidden screws is to remove the arm rest control panel on the door as described by owners of 2008-2012 Imprezas that had posted the process on forums and or had videos. There has obviously been a change since 2012, or at least on the XV, as the slot to accommodate a screw driver or other prying tool at the front end is no longer there. After removing the screw in the pull handle pocket, a serious prying effort would not release the front sectiion of the panel.
Any suggestions from anyone with experience with this task?
Thanks in advance.
