The lights are held into the body but the bolts/nuts and butyl tape. Once
the nuts are removed from the light housing inside the trunk, pull/pry the
light away from the body. Mine took a bit of persuasion, but eventually came
out. The butyl tape is the gooey black rubber stuff which is sometimes used
around windshields and such. For re-install, buy 5 feet or so from a
body/paint supply shop. I also used this stuff to seal the white colored
air ventillation housing located next to the wiper motor. If this isn't the
you are looking for, let me know and I will try again.
Sorry to hear about the contact with the 85. Hope it will recover.
