This may have been posted before, but I'm looking for help on removing my rear tail lights. I have an R33 GTS-T. I've got the 5 nuts unscrewed from the back of the lights (inside the trunk), but they still won't budge. What am I missing?

Perhaps they are glued in with some kind of liquid sealing...

... that's just how mine were additionally fixed (had also removed all bolts and it still was stuck).

In this case use a hot air gun and slightly warm up the area around the tail lights inside your boot (be careful not to burn anything). After a few minutes, the sealent gets mellow and you should be able to pull your lights.

Cheers,

Leo

Yep, super sticky black sealant guley stuff, gentle persuation with a flat blade screw driver and a long retractable is what I used.

1) Make sure you've got a roll of nice new mastic seal strip when you re-fit them.
2) Expect to get the horrible sticky stuff everywhere...
