If you have the owner's manual, it should tell you how to do it. Look on the light cover, there are two indentions on each side, push them in and pull back. Cover should pop off.

If you're looking to take the whole light assembly off, you have to pull the deck cover. There are screws on the bottom of the light you'll need to remove to get the who assembly off.

I took mine off and did a DIY of vinyl tape and made a light cover. Printed an Audi logo from Google, laid it on the vinyl tape and cut it out.

So with me getting my back window tinted I want to remove the 3rd brake light so they will tint the whole window instead of just cutting around it. I tried just pushing in on the sides and then pulling but it didn't come off. I also looked in my manual but it doesn't say anything about removal. Got some ideas?

Is it a really forceful pull?
