You need to remove the carpet side trim panel from the boot area first.

Then undo the retaining bolts & drop the speakers away from the parcel shelf support.
(The "covers" do not come off)

If you have a look in the Haynes manual for the 9000 (p11.18) it is all described.

If you don't have sight of one...

First, remove the spare wheel cover.
(by unscreewing the two "scuff plates".Drop the seat backrest to get at the front one)

Second. remove the plastic caps around the hatch opening, prise off the rubber seal from around the tailgate & carefully prise the carpet
away.(You may need a screwdriver at the parcel shelf/speaker mounts to release the plastic "tangs" which grip the carpet)
