Hi there, 


I'm trying to replace the rear taillight lens on the driver side of my 92 Loyale and I cannot figure out how to remove the lens. I removed the two 8 mm nuts on the bolts that extend into the compartment you access to change the bulbs, but the lens doesn't budge. Can anyone tell me how to do this please?


Thanks in advance!

short answer: pull harder.   there are only two nuts and you got those already so all you have to do is fight the sticky black dum dum they use to seal the light to the body. its like chewing gum/tar. hth

Got it - used a small flat wonder bar type pry bar to get it started and then sliced the black tar adhesive with a blade to get it off. Thanks again.
