Remove the round cover in the trunk area. There will be a wing nut you take off. Now on the outside of car, using a small flat screwdriver place it underneath the rubber gasket on the light assembly ( depending on left or right light assembly, screwdriver should be where the bumber cover meets the body. There are 2 clips underneath at opposite ends near both body parts meeting ) It does take a little force top pop out the whole assembly, make sure screwdriver is big enough it does not bend.
