    According to the Helms manual, there should be a plastic (or metal?)
    holder through which that screw (according to the figure it is a screw,
    not a bolt) holds the tail light from below. On either side should be
    two bolts. Try removing them, and taking off that plastic/metal clip
    thing as well. The diagram in Helms manual indicates 3 bolts from
    inside the trunk, and 1 screw and 2 bolts from below (between the
    bumper and light).
    Hope this helps.
