The charger is fitted to the 12v plug observing correct polarity. When plugged into the 12v socket in the car and the mains the power is reverse fed through the 12v socket back to the battery to charge the car.

Regarding your boot trim. Why not take the spring clips of the new wrong colour one and fit them onto your existing one? Are they already stuck into the tailgate? If so just remove them and refit to existing. Plastics may be damaged around the clip mountings so may have to repair them using strong glue or epoxy. Have a look at the trim you will see how the clips slide in. Make sure the release cable is correctly in its guides and fitted to the lock release before you finally refit it.

Thanks @audifan. Yes, unfortunately some of the plastics on the existing trim are broken so will require some gluing back together. I'll pop the clips out and have a go.

If you have to glue any in that "float" to find their location, I would fix them centrally in the slot. Epoxy probably better and give it plenty of time to fully cure before refitting.
