I got some LED back up lights, but how do I access the bulb of the tail lights?

You will find two 10mm screws on the side of the taillights when the tailgate is down. remove them and pull straight out towards back of truck.

It won't come out after I unscrewed the two 10 mm screws. The light pod seems to still be hung up on something at the inside fender area.

What now?

So if I pull those nipple things out, and it takes that much force, will they plug back in and will it sit right when I put it back?

YOU'RE THE MAN! MAN.

It worked as you said. The LED sucks though. Dimmer than the stock back up lights.

I'm putting the PUTCO 360 lights on my brake lights in the future.
