Default How to remove C5 trunk lock from trunk lid and retain sanity?

I need to remove my trunk lock unit from my trunk lid to attempt a repair, but having removed the trunk lid liner, I can't see how to remove the lock unit.

Having disengaged the connector rod between the lock unit and the latch and undoing the two 10mm nuts, I thought the unit would be free to remove. It seems to be restrained by the handles though (they look like they mount from outside), but really I'm at a loss.

Need a heads up please on how to do this? Any DIY's or gold advice? I figure I'm missing something simple, but what?

Cheers. M
