2008 Kia: a brake light that went out..bulb..hatchback..tail light

Customer Question

I have a 2008 Kia Rio5 and have a brake light that went out. I have bought the replacement bulb but when I went to install it myself I could not seem to get the job done. I lifted the hatchback and removed the 2 screws on the inside lip which should have allowed me to remove the entire tail light piece. I then noticed that there is a third point where either there is another screw on the inside of the frame somewhere or maybe it's some kind of snap in device. I did not want to keep pulling so as to not damage the actual tail light. Could you please tell me what to do to finish changing my brake light bulb.
