I can't seem to get it out, I almost destroyed everything.
How the heck this tail light gets out? :D
Everything seems to rotate.

If you release the lens cover (and maybe the lamp too) can you see the tabs from the centre of the cowl.

That and the lower screws (which I think you have out already) ought to release it - re. manual 2-6.

Hello bro, thanks for your reply.
This is what I see from the other side.

I can only see a "Cylinder" where the thread is and the end of the bolt. But when I try to undo them everything rotates.
I tried to catch the Ring with vice grip and totally bend and chew on it. It wouldn't come out.


Which manual are you talking about? :D Can you give me a link?

If the reflector doesn't pop out then the tab must be released from the outside. Go about centrally below the line of the bulb holders and see if you can feel it.
If the tab affair doesn't push/pull then it could just be locating, in that case sliding the light unit towards the front of the bike 1/2" should release it.

I am sorry brother I just still don't get it.
Reflector is out as you can see, this actual pictures is from my rear fender inside my house, removed from the bike.
I just wanted to remove the whole tail light assembly apart from the rear fender.
I could only see this 2 bolts.


This is from my model book CB250FT.

I try to remove bolt (No 10) I can't see washer No 8 anywhere, only the rubber No 6, and the No 7 does rotate whenever I try to remove the bolt, so I can't get it out.
I could only slide it from the fender by pulling it out and almost destroying No 6 rubber (The circle lips are almost all broken) So I wanted to remove it and fix it somehow so it doesn't have a play.
Now I added some gasket sealant in there to stuck everything together.
I couldn't see any clips, maybe you have some pictures or the manual you are talking about?
