Yah, I had to look up how to get the assembly out on this forum. That was the hardest part-- it pulls strait forward

I PULLED STRAIGHT! I guess mine are halfway rusted in there, being as everything on this car when I got it was still OEM from the factory. Hell, when I put new SS Ultra'* in the bulbs I took out were from 2002.

Finished clearing the rears today. Did the tails last week and the center today, no cutting. Wasn't to hard didn't even brake the clips, heated them with heat gun from inside the trunk.

Please do a write up on how to remove the center section from the car. I can't for the life of me figure it out.

Take out the 4 10mm nuts and I warmed up the clips from the inside of the trunk with a heat gun so they wouldn't brake, then pryed them up with a scewdriver wraped with a rag. The heat made the big difference
