I need to adjust the striker (attached to the body, not the latch attached to the boot lid) on a 2003 Beetle convertible

To access the two star bolts holding the striker, I need to remove the trunk lid rubber seal and the plastic trim at the bottom edge of the trunk opening

Any suggestions how I remove that plastic trim without breaking it?

For anyone attempting this, there are I think 3 10mm bolts holding the centre section in. Remove these. Pop out the inner grills behind the lights inside the boot, then undo the securing screw for each of the side panels. You can then pull each side panel out followed by the centre panel giving access to the striker plate adjustment splined bolts
