Tail lamp assembly removal

Well, I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer....and simply because I didn't want to admit my stupidity. I have to be missing something. How do the rear tail lamps come out? I removed the lens and unscrewed the two visible screws from the housing. It still does not feel like it wants to come out.

Thanks, Patrick

I recall having to pry one of mine out while replcing seals...LOTS of dirt in there (blew my mind at the amount of outright dirt!). IIRC, mine had just the 2 screws, as well. Maybe some gentle pressure?....

Hadn't thought about this before, but can you reach it from under/behind?

BTW: what year car?

Best,

Thanks. I couldn't reach it from behind.
It's a 1977.

Also, does anyone know the difference between a euro assembly and the US version? Not talking about the lens, which is obvious.

Thanks

Does anyone have a picture of a non-US tail lamp? I don't just mean the swapped out lens. Supposedly the ROW assembly is different, regarding the side where the reflector is on a US lamp.
