So I'm trying to remove the metallic thing and before I can do that I need to remove the tail lights. The thing is, I don't know how to get to the third screw. Do i have to take the plastic thing off? If so, I got that mostly removed but I cant get the top part off. Is there a secret in doing this? Thanks :)

i removed it to check the bulb last week

there is no third screw, only the too in the inside, the other side is just clip, just pull on the light toward you from the back of the car it should unclip easely

oh and by metallic I mean chrome! was in a rush earlier today before work. Thanks, it felt as if there was another screw so looks like I was trying to do more work than what was needed.

yeah thats the part near the chrome on the right tail light. of course the dealership is closed on sunday so I won't be able to place an order till monday. Looks as if I get to be asking a few questions while I'm there! They are getting to know me pretty well...

Don't worry. I'll get instructions posted on how to do it when I get my replacement. I'll look at the diagrams and ask them how they do it since the dealership I work with is very friendly. Plus the guy I have been talking to likes what I am currently doing to it so it makes it even better ;D

Nice. I really am thinking that this WRX is the best that they have made. I just wish that it came in the EJ20 motor.
