Decklid attached to faux cap

I am looking to remove my current decklid. I thought the decklid was separate from the faux gas cap, but when I went to remove it, the decklid pulled on the cap. So, how would I go about removing this? Any help is appreciated thank you.

There may be the stock one under it though. Bc thay panel is meant to cover up the factory one.

my car came with that deck lid panel, that particular one comes off as one whole piece, its bare trunk lid under there, you will need to source a faux gas lid. I removed mine and sold it on another forum, I bought v6 faux lid as I prefer the running pony emblem to the gt emblem

Okay. So I'm guessing all I need to do is just pull it off really hard since the faux cap is taped too I assume??

I used fishing line to cut through the heavy duty double sided tape Ford uses

Okay. I'm just making sure that there aren't any bolts holding the faux cap on. It is just tape, right?
