     After that, you will notice a black plastic bolt, which actually holds the tail light assembly. You will have to unscrew it, using the flat blade screwdriver. You should also uncover a small red plastic tab, that is actually the emergency fuel door release. Pulling that out disengages the fuel door, in case of a dead battery or other emergencies.
