Re: ******HELP!!!****** LOOK HERE!!!!!! TAILIGHT PROBLEM (compakt)

there should only be the 4 nuts inside the trunk to take off... I take mine off all the time and never have had a problem... I cant even see how you could break the actual housing from inside there anyways.... somethings not right with your lights man

You could break them by over tightening them...
