Just to flog an old dead horse ...

I just did this 5 min. ago. THE BIG sticking point was not the upper clip so much as the rubber gasket. Turns out it had some adhesive from the factory holding it to the rear window. I used a thin plastic pry bar to work it loose.

Tail light removal??

Hey everyone, I read up on the threads about how to remove your tail lights. I plan on tinting them (SVT zx3) tomorrow so I wanted to be sure I knew how to remove them before hand.

I removed the phillips screw and the wingnut, then pulled to get the last clasp thingy free. I heard it pop free, and I could look into my wiring area and see that it was not fastened anymore. BUT my tail light would not come out! It acted like there was something else holding it in close to the side window. I pried and tugged but it didn't come out. Is there something I missed or am I just being too timid on the force? Is it supposed to feel stuck in one more place?
