Default Problem removing rear tail lights.

I am trying to remove the middle section of my rear tail lights.

I have removed 6 nuts so far, all the same size.

Still won't budge, scared to pull too hard.

Sorry if this is in another post, i looked through tech files and posts for about an hour and couldnt find anything usefull... thanks.

If you have removed all the nuts you need to pry up evenly on both sides of the bottom of the panel. It may make some disturbing noise from the studs but don't worry. When you get enough clearance, there are white plastic tabs on each side of the top of the panel that you'll have to press in with a long screwdriver. That should pretty much be all there is to it. I know somebody around here has the pictures on their cardomain page. Maybe they'll chime in here...
