on a 99 Montana had to purchase a T30 star driver then open back hatch to see screws on inside side of lens cover remove T30 screws and remove lens assembly ==Additional info== There are what appear to be two additional screws, that at first glance it appears that you need to remove the entire inside panel to get at. (This is much more obvious when you are replacing the entire tail light assembly and you will see these screws sticking out of the back of the new assembly.) These are not actually screwed in. There is some type of plastic sleeve or cap attached to the body that these screws slide into. This cap is ridged on the inside to catch on the screws thread and hold the lamp assembly in place. Once the torx (or star) screws have been removed, simply pull the tail light straight out. The two other screws will slide out of the plastic cap with a little force. When installing the new assembly (or the old one) simply slide those screws back into the plastic cap, which should still be attached to the body. You should be able to hear it click as the threads pass over the ridges inside the cap. At least this was the case with my 2000 Montana, and I would imagine it is also the case with similar models.
