Question E320 Phone installation - Help Please!

I just began installing a factory phone for my wife's E 320 and this thread has been helpful. So far I have installed the remote control unit and have located the cable in the trunk for the TRU, and the connector in the armrest for the handset. Can someone tell me the following:
1. Where are the TRU mounting brackets supposed to be located in the trunk?
2. Are the adhesive backed rubber strips intended for the TRU bracket to cushion, or "isolate" that unit once put in the mounting bracket?
3. It appears that I will have to remove the armrest "liner" to mount the handset cradle with the two machine screws provided for that purpose. Are there any pitfalls to be aware of when removing/replacing the "liner"?
Thanks for the assistance!
