Don't think that's a rivet. Should be a plastic trim holder and tool looks like a screw driver with a split at the end so goes under it and pry up.

I've removed the amp without that. There's just those small sliding J brackets. Wiggle them out then slide them to the left or right and they should come out enough to pop the amplifier out. I've taken the trunk trim out, too, but I've gotten so good at it without taking the whole trim out lately (amplifier part number nightmare, don't ask).

A flat screwdriver is seriously all you need. I have used this method with plenty of E92s without a single scratch, etc. It's so easy.

I'm not against the right tool for the job as I have a tool for just about everything but in this case, I STILL use a screwdriver. It's not even worth the effort to pull another tool out for this simple process.

Fishing line, thin yarn or something like it...wedge it in, wrap around the rivet and pull
