For the side pieces. Its pretty much just a tug and a pull away. The middle piece you gotta open up the hatch and take off the piece under the spoiler. There are then a few bolts you need to take off. I believe its a 12 MM or 10 MM.

If it's never been removed before it should be pretty tight, but you won't need a breaker bar or anything. Simple elbow grease on a ratchet should suffice. Is yours a liftback? If it's a coupe then there are also 2 screws on either side of the middle piece. Take those out, and the middle bolt and it'll slide right off. You won't have much room once you get it off though because the brake light will still be connected, and it's a bitch and a half to get it disconnected. Be careful at this point, make sure you put some towels or something on the deck lid because if you don't balance it well while you're trying to disconnect the brake light you will scratch the hell out of the decklid. After that there will be two plastic "Retainers" that go through the decklid and they have a screw that goes down through the middle of them. Remove that and pinch the clip part that goes through the lid and you're golden.
