Ok I removed the bolts, disconnected the harness plug, and she wont move. I've tried pushing on the light itself from outside the trunk and it wont budge. I pushed so hard I was afraid of breaking the light. Is there something Im missing? Thanks!

There is a mounting tape around the edge of the light attaching it to the trunk. You have to push the light HARD to get it to budge. I took an exacto knife to mine around the edges wondering what had gunked it off. I finally resorted to brute force to get it to budge.

There are four clips made into the the actual red part of the light. You have to push out away from the middle of the light on each side.
The red lens will stay in the trunk lid. The inner plastic guts with the LED bulbs is what comes out.

Pm me if you have any problem. I took mine out and added a scanner third brake light. I took the led strip out of the 3rd brake light and added a new strip with LEDs.

Give it all she's got Kiptin! Warp speed on pushin that dog! Its double sided tape holding the lense in place. TRUST me. I had to remove mine for my trunk blackout. Had to cut the hole in the trunk blackout and fold thematerial into the third light hole, and then reinstall the light assembly. It will work. Stop bein a girlie girl. hehehe

It always blows my mind when people say they can't get the stupid thing out . . . it's such a common problem to find them hanging inside the trunk, you'd think it would be easy.. If you've got the screws out, just push that sucker real hard. What breaks is the bracket that holds the screws . . . so if those are out, I don't think there is anything to hurt.
