    You guys must be leaving something out of this procedure.

    With the two torx screws removed from the sides of the gray box, it will not budge. Meaning...there must be another screw at the top of the box that is neither visible nor accessible from the area in the photos.

    I will replace this bulb the next time the rear clip has to come off, which with any luck will be never.

    How many guys does it take to change a lightbulb... :/

    You are right, there is a third screw, I forget if it is at the top or bottom but I don't remember it being super difficult. Let me dig up some pictures.

    Forget it. Can't be done without disassembling the car.

    You can see two of the three torx screws in the pics already posted. The third (at the top and hidden) is not accessible.

    The last time I had my lights off I cut the plastic studs off the back and replaced them with screw in metal studs so now taking them on and off isn't a problem.

    The local Ford dealership (Greensboro, NC) did this on my Friend's car for about $50 in less than an hour.

    My GT tech replaced mine. He said the torx bolt that I called inaccessible is accessible with a wrench on a torx bit and a lot of patience. Also, the transaxle was out for clutch replacement, so he was able get at it from underneath where he could see what he was doing.
