I removed the kick panel to access the predifined area where the boot installs on the body.
I drilled a hole in the center of the plate covering the boot hole. Once the hole was drilled, I used an electric body saw to cut lines in the plate. After the lines were cut, I used plyers to pry, wiggled the pieces back and forth to remove the pieces off the car. It some effort but it wasn't too bad. There are a couple of welds but the plate is also held on with some glue.
The plate on the door was welded in a couple of spots as well but was more loose. I used the body saw to cut the bottom weld and again used some plyers to wiggle the plate off.
I could only get to two screw holes, which are defined by dimples, and drill the holes. The boot just presses into the hole.
