How do you remove the tail lights?

I'm trying to get the tail light housings off my 06 liberty. I only see 2 screws per side but neither light will come off with them removed. I'm afraid to just pull on them for fear I have missed something.

Remove the screws and pull straight out.There are two posts that go into grommets on the side opposite the mounting screws.Just pull it'll come off.And here's a tip lube the posts up with some dielectric grease before ya put 'em back they'll come out easier next time.

Great, thanks. I figured it was safer to ask before I started pulling on things.

re: Liberty tail lamps

Be careful when removing and reinstalling. There is a clear plastic separator piece inside that lays flat which, if it falls on top of the tail lamp due to shaking of the lamp assembly will cause a bulb failure within a few days. Then you will have to either break apart the plastic part r replace the entire assembly. Been there did that got a new tail lamp free because the dealer did it first time. I knew NOT to shake it up when it was time to replace a bulb out of warranty.
