Well i undid the two screws for the tail light and i thought there was just a clip so all you had to do was pull.

I tried doing this but it seem like its not moving. Will i just have to pull it out harder or is there a third screw???

Thanks

undo the two bolts, which you've done.

its helps to slip your hand in the back, push the light sideways, and towards the outside

has two little lugs that it needs to unclip from. Its tight, but it'll come out

mine took forever to come out.

take 2 screws out and pull to the side of the car.

my light was bending so much i decided to pull back the boot carpet and give the lugs a gentle tap to dislodge the clips
