Customer Question

Hi Eric,
I have a 2011 Ford Edge Limited which I purchased used and out of warranty; the back up camera is not working since purchase. Before buying the oem replacement camera, I took a shot at removing the panel on the rear lift gate and to keep this message short I would say it was relatively easy until reaching the seat of the camera module. I can't seem to figure out how to pull it the camera from the bracket/housing that the camera is seated in. Would you happen to know the trick to removing the camera without having to break any of the plastic bracket/housing that keeps it in place?
