Just yank it out, for there are pins/clips that are holding it in place and feels like you will break em but you will not. You will see whay after you get one out. They do not slide out as a person would expect.

After removing the 2 screws I found pulling the bottom straight out to the side of the car first helped me get them out.

Stand alongside the rear fender(s) and grab the bottom lip and pull out toward you.

Yea C. described it best. Don't stand behind the car and pull towards you. Stand next to the tail light and pulled the light towards you.

Just got to this Veasna.....and looks like you succeeded. I found pulling from the side of the car best for me...you found pulling sideways but from the end of the lens best for you.
glad to see you succeeded.
