Question Replacing brake light on 97 Escort

HELP!!!! I have replaced a brake light before but I don't remember how I did it and it has been 4 years. I can not get the cover off of the light. I unscrewed what I was supposed to but not I can't get the rest of the cover off. I have instructions that tell me to "hit the hidden pieces with the side of your hand towards the side of the car" What in heavens name is that supposed to mean??? I am changing the passenger brake light. I am getting extremely fraustrated and I am about to rip the dang thing off. So please if anyone knows an easier way and one that makes sense please let me know. Thank you.

not familiar with this vehicle, but I would look inside the trunk first and see if maybe a couple nuts or plastic wing nuts wont let you remove entire assembly. Lights may be R&R from the back side. Seems to be the trend anymore.

Im in the trunk

I am in the trunk of the car and I only found two attachments to the light but I am unable to get them loose. They don't pop out and they don't twist off, I am not sure where else to go with it.

Unable to get on Autolibrary

I can't get on, it says that I am not authorized.
