    Negative, remove the rear glass trim and you will see the screw holding it down. I'm not sure if the filler panel can clear the car with the trunk lid installed. You might need to remove the trunk lid.

    Protect the rear window with something that can take a hit from the torque arm just to be safe, maybe some plywood and a uhaul blanket.
