Default Just Purchased a 997.2 Turbo Coupe

I need help! I just purchased a 2011 Platinum Silver Turbo. I want to take out the rear quarter panel air vents and paint them black. On the 991, all one needs to do is pull the vents straight out by hand - held in place by clips. Is this the same with the 997.2 Turbo? Or, do i need to drop the rear wheels and take out the wheel tubs/shells to get to the vents? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to start pulling on the vents, thinking they are held by clips and end up cracking them. Thank you.

Here's a bit of a DIY on 6speed, unfortunately it looks like some of the photos have vanished.
