Changing brake lightbulb?

Just picked up some bulbs for my brake light. Not seeing any screws though to take the plastic cover off. How do you access the light bulb?

There are two plastic "push pin" looking things for lack of a better term.

They are two pieces an inner and outer. You need to pry the inner out then pull the outer part out. Then you'll be able to get the light assembly out.

It's a pain in the butt, WTF happened to screws.
