    Quick question this morning... Tail light removal. I have a brake light out and needs to remove to replace. There are the two screws on the inside of the bed but it seems to still be attached. Before I pull to hard and brake something how does this remove? TIA.

    PS tried search but everyone seems to know how to do this LOL!

    Thats all that is holding the taillight, pull with caution real slow you dont want to yank the wires. Try to rock it side to side kind of motion.

    I thought there was a third? Oh well, I know taking mine out was a pain in the ass... removing the bulb was even more. I almost broke it trying to get it out, fused in there or something.

    Pretty straight forward- two bolts in the bed then yes rocking back'n forth while pulling pops right out. It just felt harder then it should. Bulb filaments looked ok must have been bad in the wedge. Cheers!
