Me and a buddy at work were attempting to find an easier way to remove the rear tail pots from the car without resorting to prying on the leading corner of it from the outside, as demonstrated in videos. We found that backing the 2 10mm nuts holding them on just to the ends of the studs, we could push on the top one straight back and it would pop it out. Put a deep socket 10mm on it with a ratchet for extra leverage. Just push it to the rear of the car, some decent force is needed, and it pops out of the plastic retention clips like butter. Hope this helps!

Good info for those who want to remove them. Lots of people have broken that end of the light
