New to site and just bought 99 nb. The right rear tail light was popped out when I bought it. I have tried to put it back , but not much luck. What am I missing, can someone help?

Dang typing came out too small to read. Open rear hatch find the cover shown in first picture and remove it. There's a slot you can use a trim panel tool or screwdriver to remove it.

Look and see if you can find the wingnut that is shown in second pictrue it may have worked it's way loose and fallen into the cavity below the tail light. The tail light will not stay in place without this wingnut. There is a stud attatched to a spring like thing on the back of the tailight that this screws onto.
