yeah, they just pop out. Like boosty said. The screw on mine is tight but it doesn't clamp down the the corner light.

also, sort of related... I seem to be getting a lot of water draining from the tails when i was the car, and also, I get a whole bunch of DIC indicators for lamps out right after I was the Bonne... they go away once the water drains out in about 15 mins or so, but is this normal...? and the tails... it seems water will stay in there for days becuase it isn't exposed to too much air, becuase its in the little crack where the trunklid goes into? Thanks

Water should not be getting into the actual light "boxes". The way our (96-99) lights are set up, there really shouldn't even be that much getting behind them.

I would pull the housings off the car, ensure they are nice and dry (inside and out), and seal any leaks with a small amount of clear silicon adhesive.

Also, verify each plug has it'* foam "donut". I belive this is used as a seal, as well. Simple enough to make your own, out of thin (maybe 3/8 inch) foam, felt, etc, if they are missing.
