checking, just bulb not the whole light?

Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

its only the two top bolts and back nut as you mentioned, What is it doing/not doing per say. it need a little effore to wiggle and remove, There is nothing else holding it if you got the right nut on the back

Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

there is a retaining clip on the out side corner so it has to be forced a, little to unclip that retainer

Hi Randall; Cant use phone as I'm deaf . unit seems to be hanging up on bottom of assemble, tapped it with my hand on the right side and that now does not want to come back out flush with fender. Just trying to change bulb, but guess now may have to remove assembly anyway to get assembly back in outside clip ?
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

I think there is a tab on the bottom but for sure the clip on the outer corner,. Kind of takes some wiggling , pulling and tilting it some to get it out, You have removed all that is holding it, just the clip and bottom tab remains

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
don't want to break the tab on the bottom but will apply a little force and see what happens; apparently have to get it out now and not sure how that bottom clip is situated, I've lifted it up some and tried back and forth but just hung up and as I said rather not break something if possible to remove w/o breaking .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I could get the outside tab in w/o breaking something and could get the bulb out w/o removing the complete assembly I would but manual says remove assembly so?
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

understood, that tab is a bit tight, need to work it , or wedge a stick in to help pop the tab loose, I can only confirm that all the bolts/nuts are out and what is left
