Porsche Crest How to Remove Taillight Assy?



How do I remove the Taillight assy in my Cayenne?

I have taken out the (2) screws, but something else is holding it in.

Any clips that must be pushed in to release it? Don't want to break an expensive part.

Thanks in advance!

There are two ball type pop in type thingies holding mainly the other side. If you have never, or if it never has been out before you will probably break the damn things. You can either opt to get some new ones now before you take it out, for when you put it back in, or you can just say the hell with them. I have been running mine for a couple years without them. The two bolts will hold it in unless you have a 10G crash in reverse. You need to have something soft to pry the outside of the light away from the body and it will pop right out. I have purchased the replacement pop in nut things but have never had the time to do it. Good Luck! It is really a ridiculous setup for such a great truck.

I forgot, the two plastic nut things are probably under 3 bucks.
