    Hey so my passenger corner light just went out. I went and got the bulb for it, popped the hood, and turned around to grab my laptop. Whats the trick to this? Looked all over TW and couldnt find anything. Thanks!

    OK, I found the trick. I basically just remove the screw and then standing BEHIND the corner lense (facing toward where the truck is pointing) I hit the lense with the palm of my hand pushing it forward. Prying it off is much more difficult. Sounds a little brutal, but you'll see what I'm saying when you try it. Don't be worried about breaking anything.
