You have to undo the two screws in the tail light assembly and then slide it towards the side of the car. There are two ball clips holding it in. Requires a reasonable amount of force sometimes. However you can also sometimes remove the carpet lining and push the ball clip retainers out of the boot. Hope that kinda helps. Bit fuzzy

Yeah, undo the 2 screws & sort of pull & twist back & forth & you will be able to see the way it is supposed to come out.

The first time you do it is pretty scary cause you dont want to damage it, but once you get it out it you will think is that it.

You just have to pull hard enough to get those ball clips out & then its easy.
