Default How do I replace the rear bumper mounted back up light lense on 2006 PT Cruiser

I was able to download the free repair manual that CREWZIN posted
http://www.berrysprinter.com/e-fiche...06-08/07pt.pdf
which was great, thank you. However, I couldn't find instructions on how to replace the lense in the bumper.
I found the lense at :
2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Tail Light Assembly - Body Electrical - Replacement, Right - Passenger Side, Left - Driver Side - PartsGeek
It is the smaller one at the bottom of the page, oval shaped.
Has anyone ever replaced one of these before?

I think they changed it in 06 with the new style back bumper. I don't see any screws to work with. Somebody will come along with the newer shape and let you know how to take it out.

theres not a separate lense its one unit you put a thin blade of some kind in the small gap between the edge of the light and the recess in the bumper and push sideways and it should pop out..there is a springclip that holds it in....chris

Thanks to all for your help. Slayer, I popped it out like you said and replaced the assembly and probably saved myself 200 bucks in labor from the dealer. Great and informative sight.
