     In the beginning, you need to open your trunk and look on the right side, near the tail light, after two plastic knobs (marked in the picture below). These pieces actually hold in place the tail light assembly. You can remove them using the flat blade screwdriver. You just have to pry out their middle and they will come out.

You will notice now, that the tail light only holds in its harness. To remove it, first press the small red locking mechanism (shown in the next image) and then, using your thumb, press the black clamp. After you do it, you are done.
