C-Pillar trim removal

Can anyone help me by explaining how to remove the interior C-Pillar trim easily please?

My 2002 R53 seems to be leaking water after prolonged rain. From what I can tell the leak appears to be around this area (near side rear quarter)because the water is running through the seatbelt 'slit' then trickling down onto my rear seat.

After all this rain we've had in the last few weeks, my seat is drenched even after putting towels around the area etc.

I've gently pulled the headlining away from the tailgate and can see that the wet area is concentrated on the near side which I think eliminated the aerial and third brake light as the culprits.

Any ideas where the leak could be from? The drain plug appears to be fine as far as I can see... But that's why I want to check if the drain hose is disconnected somehow.
