Default 02 Taillight hanging off car

Someone must have hit me - question is how does the tail light mount on the car. There looks to be 3 contact points which have been crunched. They appear to mount somehow to three round metal mounts. I am working and have yet to see the inside of the trunk, but could any of you shed some light on what needs to be done here? And parts numbers if possible? Thanks!!

The tail lights use threaded studs & plastic wing nuts to hold them in place:

You'll probably find them when you open the trunk. You can either try to reattach them using a two part epoxy, or just replace the tail light assembly. Ebay or your local junkyard would be your best bet.

On the 02 Lasabre there are studs inside the trunck lid with wingnuts. Easy fix unless lense or studs broken. Should be easy to find in local junk yard.
