By now you've heard how to take them off... let me add that you should look  
carefully at how the cargo net brackets mount before you take them  off.  
They're in an awkward place, I think I moved and tilted the seat  forward to put a 
foot inside the car to reach in there. So you end up glancing  at it for a 
second to see where the screw head is and do the rest by feel, up  under the 
edge without really seeing the layout. They're an unusual design, and  if you 
just take them all off in a big hurry, then don't get around to finishing  the 
job for a month, you won't remember how the heck they go back in. I don't  have 
my notes here at work, but as I recall, the backer board is held between  the 
two short prongs. 
Also, there is a little play in the location of the four hinge screws at  the 
engine cover. If you don't check first and adjust, they may cause the engine  
cover to rub against the rear fascia. I got new hinges from P. J. Grady. For  
awhile they were unavailable.
