yeah the service manual is NO HELP. You might try some wd-40 after a little bit of prying. shoot it towards the pins shown the in the manual. mostly the corners.

With the help of a coworker I was able to get off. The first one was a fighter the second one came off easier.

Yea, they do seem to fight you, but once you get one off you get a sense of how it's attached and the other is a little easier.

Tailight

It helps if you have a thin plastic body tool and stick under light , if not under you will crack lenses.

Thanks I replace the bulbs with LED, so I hope I donít have to go and changes them again. That is the one thing I was worrying about was breaking the lens. I started to take it to a shop, but most places wonít change them unless you buy the part from them

Sorry to hear that, it took about an half an hour just to get one out. The second one about twenty minutes. There was a small piece that got broken of on one of the clips.
