    Default 3rd brakelight removal

    Hi guys,i just got my clear brakelight this morn(after waiting 3 weeks!)i removed the cover in the boot to find that there is a metal guard behind the light,so that means i have to remove it from the outside.Does anyone have a "how 2"or tips on removal,eg smash it out or prise it out,as obviously i don`t want to damage the paintwork or wiring.Thanks in advance
