Default Removing rear power outlet

I want to replace the rear power outlet (above the subwoofer) with an Engel plug. Does this socket just pull out or do I need to remove the trim to access the back of the plug?

Thanks

Ok for those that want to know, the answer is sort of. You need a set of pliers similar to circlip pliers to release 2 tabs on the inside. But I actually found it quite easy to remove enough trim to access the back of the plug. From there I have tapped into the +ve and ran a wire under the rear scuff plate to the other side of the car, then through to the compartment under the passengers seat. This wire is then used to trigger a relay which then feeds power from the battery to a fuse block.

By doing it this way I now have 6 individually fused sources of ignition switched power for things like UHF, DC-DC, Dash Cam, etc. It also means I only need to run a light gauge wire to trigger the relay and can use a more suitable heavier gauge wire from the battery.
