Hi I wanted to replace my reverse lights today to some leds I ordered, only problem is that I can't take the back lights off. Looks very simple on the manual, take the two screws out and should pop out but it doesn't, feels like there's another screw holding it but can't seem to find it.

Was wondering if anyone has taken em out before and how they managed it. Thanks.

There isn't another screw.
Remove the two 10mm bolts.
Then you have to grab the light and pull towards you.

After changing my rears, I noticed I scratched the paint around the edges of both the clusters. USE MASKING TAPE around the edges of the paintwork or lights when you do it!!
Also, use a pair of grippy rubber style gloves to assist with the power/adhesion.
