Default Removing the brake light on a 2000 SSEi

How do you go about removing the trunk tail light on 2000 ssei? I removed all the bolts that I could see holding it on but the darn thing didn't want to move.

Take the Three nuts off of the three studs, then tap the studs to pop out the entire assembly.....good luck!!

actually he is talking about the center taillight


there are 4 Bolts and then 2 clips, right behind the area of the amber part of the taillight. You must get the clips off, and they are a pain. My suggestion is to get something with a little leverage, stidk it between the light and the trunk and then slowly pry the light off. Its not an easy task to say the least
