third brakelight replacement

Does anyone have any experience replacing the third brakelight on an E92 coupe? The part is around $90. Looks like I should be able to do the uninstall/install but I'd appreciate any insight.

It clips in place and slides to one side (can't remember which direction off the top of my head).

Thanks Red Raider. (I used your slide technique because I only released the tab closest to me. As I slid it towards me, it released the tab at the opposite end. That's when I noticed that both ends have a sliding tab and sliding shouldn't be necessary. An Aggie, what do you expect? HA!)

For future reference:

Pry decorative cover off at rear edge then slide it to rear.

Release tabs at each end of light bar and light bar should release.

Open white plastic clip holding wire connection.

Open connection using tip of very small screwdriver to release retaining points.

Replacement can be purchased at Turner Motorsport for $91.95 plus shipping.
