wheel well hidden storage?

I remember reading a post some months ago where someone did a mod and remarked about hidden space available in one (not both?) of the 5th gen wheel wells in the cargo area. If possible, I would like to pop off the wheel well storage tray and put a few things in there. Can anyone point me to that thread, or fill in the details? I'd prefer some guidance before digging in - many thanks

(and before the search-police jump on me ... I searched for it already without success)

The only person I can think of who had all that off was harper7 when he did his soundproofing. I'd check his posts, but be prepared to remove everything from the back carpet up as those trays are screwed in place.

I believe it was Harper. There is a thread with links to Picasa pics, the pic you want is in there.

I did it after reading Harper7's post. You CAN get those off without taking the panels out- that's how I did mine (both sides). I grabbed the edge closest to the side window and pulled up with a trim removal tool until I could get my fingers in there. Then -scary part- kept pulling until the tabs with the screws broke. You will cut that part off anyway. They break away cleanly without damage to the wheelwell plastic. Then you trim some clips -see Harper's Post- so they can be popped out easily and you are done! I put some trunk carpet in mine to keep it quiet in there. It's a great help when running wiring too. Thanks harper7 for the idea!
