I can't find what is the best way to remove the left lateral panel in a 2022 MP3 500. Is a trick? What are the pieces to remove?

I like access the nuts that hold the base of the EVAP system to remove it and gain space under seat.

Thanks in advance

You have to start with the grab handle and peel away like a onion.

Is no way to in example only loosen a little to be able to insert a wrench?

You only need to remove the components inside the storage compartment and cap the leftover tubes with something to prevent contaminants from entering the system. You may have to loosen the side plastic panel to reach behind it but there is no need to fully remove it and risk breaking it. Once its loose you can reach up to pull the tubes through and use zip-ties (nylon lock straps) to attach the tubes to the frame so they don't cause problems. Plugging both tubes helps reduce risk of fuel spills if the bike tips over.

Removing the entire system introduces the risk of broken paneling (removing lateral panel) or creating new mechanical issues. Leaving the tubes and other systems in place makes it easier to re-install should you ever be required to (legal fix-it requirement) or to sell the bike.

This thread has the documentation for how I did it for my 2016 Mp3
EVAP Canister Removal 2016 series Mp3

Do note that you should adequately mark which tube connected where before you start taking this out. I forgot to do this and now I don't know which tube is which
