just pull, I had the same problem. It is held on after the three screws are moved by two pop clips

It only has 2 plastic inserted type clips on another side of the screws of the lights housing. Pull it out easily after removing those screws off. If it's hard to pull out. Use a flat screw driver to pry on the top of the lights housing. just be gentle not to scratch your car paint. It should come off easily. cheers.
