hatch lights tend to stick alot my buddy just tinted his lights on the svt. once you remove all the fastners just try wiggling it back and forth, we used a screwdriver as well and after a few mins it popped off

there is only one screw on the inside of the tail lights, after you lift the hatch right? just one screw, use a flat head screw driver and wiggle?
