    One of my brake lights is out. There is only one screw on the tail light assembly which can be seen when the hatch is opened. I’ve unscrewed it and pulled on the large tail light cover firmly, but is won’t even budge. Should I pull strait back or away from the car? Or, is there something else that needs to be unscrewed?

    What does the owner's manual say?

    Bought it used, so I don't have the manual.

    Found the inside thumbscrew that releases it! It was lower down than I expected, actually below where the hatch cover sits.
