2005 9-2x Aero tail light bulb replacement

I can not figure out how to remove tail light assembly to change bulbs . 2x 10mm bolts easy BUT there is still something holding in the rear fender area .
My Subaru Outback lights slid out after fasteners removed but can't get to what ever is holding .
HELP !

Re: 2005 9-2x Aero tail light bulb replacement

Once you have the trim cover and the two 10mm bolts removed, you should just have to give it a little bit of a gentle yank straight back to get the taillight free of the clip on the quarter panel.

This video is for a 2007 Impreza wagon but the removal process is the same.

I thought that was going to be the answer ! Similar to my Outback .
I pulled as hard as I dared but chickened out for fear of breaking it .
Thanks for your help .
