Looking for Reverse Bulb DIY

I'm looking for instructions on how to replace the reverse bulb on my F30, looked through all the forums and couldn't find any.
I think I have to remove the inner trunk liner and how do I remove it ?
Thanks in advance.

I just did this, really easy. All you need to do is remove the liner on the trunk lid. You dont need to do anything with the liner actually in the trunk. there are 8-12 phillips-looking screws (they are actually more like the toggle type of fasteners used all over the car, but you can back them out with a screw driver then just pull them out). Note that two of the fasteners are in a little indentation towards the center and could be missed.

Once that liner is dangling from the actual trunk lid, you just need to press in on the tab for the reverse lamp (its the upper of the two lamps).
