replace tail/brake light in '01 Sequoia?

I am trying to replace the left rear light bulbs in my 2001 Sequoia. I can easily remove two bolts on the outside of the light assembly when the hatch is open, but the reflector/cover is still bound somewhere and won't come loose.

I believe that there is either a clip or another screw/bolt somewhere but I can't see it. I opened the storage box in the left back side near the hatch but see no screws or bolts - just a lot of plastic.

Can someone explain to me how I can release the reflector/cover so I can get access to the bulbs?

Thanks,

Brian

problem solved.

It turns out that there are no more screws/bolts - just that there are a few pins/connectors in the assembly and you just use a bit of brute force (applied outwardly and not towards the front of the car) to pop out the assembly.

Online manuals are quite handy.
