Someone tried stealing my tail light covers (the center one) they cause a whole lot of damage to my car doing it. est $500 to 1000 in damage.
Crying or Very sad
the driver side tail light was damaged as well Sad it's hard to tell but the damage was done

now the trunk lid is no longer lined up to the car chassis. still opens and closes fine though.

This is why I thought the set I saw on a car in the junkyard was not factory in another post. The plastic cover peeled off with no effort in 2 seconds. No damage to anything. GARY

Factory ones are hard to remove with out damaging the crap out of them. or with out causing damage to the trunk as well .


Best way to remove them is to unscrew the 10 bolts and just change out the whole assembly.
