    How do you get the nearside rear light bracket out?

    Hi I've tried to change nearside brake bulb but can't get the bracket out. There seems to be a plate in the way. Am I doing something stupid or should I remove the plate? I assume the big box underneath is an amp! Is it? Why so big?

    Ps it's a 2001

    Does it look like that?
    If so where the black connector is there 2 grey things either side of that press them in it should pop off the grey panel sits inside the red bit.
    Don't no what the other thing is it's not a amp thoe I don't think.

    Cheers Wayne. Thanks mate. I've done the off side but the n/s bulb holder bangs against a plate which sits above a big box, which I'm assuming in an amp. Not enough room for the bulb holder to move out as the bulbs don't clear the red bit!

    The black box is a subwoofer for the stereo. The plate might be a part of the cd changer holding bracket I think. It does come out as it is but it's a bit tight. You have to press the clips as above but tilt the bulb holder so that you are pulling the bottom edge of it away first.
