How to change 3RD Brake light in tailgate - W124

After searching for a bit and spinning my wheels, I was unable to come up with how to get to the 3rd brake light in the tailgate of a W124 wagon. Specifically 1995. I put a new one in waaaaayyy back when I first bought the car in 2009 but for the life of me I DON'T want to force the plastic and break it! Any enlightenment would be graciously accepted

I did this yesterday too, and I only cracked it a little bit. . Zero warning lights on the dash now. My OCD can rest a bit.
