Any answers?

My reverse bulb has burned out, and I can't figure out how to access the inner tail light... did you have any luck with this??

Worked like a charm, thank you!! Reflectors actually don't need to come out. Also, I'll add for the next person... only pry up the edge CLOSEST to you when lift gate is lying down, the other side will slide out...pry from the other side, and the tabs can break off...

Thanks again!!
