12C side marker/indicator lens removal

Hi Guys - can anyone give me instructions on how to remove the side marker / indicators lenses front and rear from my 2014 12C? Do the bumpers need to be removed (I hope not!). It looks like they should unclip / prise out, but I sure don't want to force anything until I know exactly what I'm doing :-) Thank you in advance.

Release the clip from the inside. You’ll need to pull back the liner.

Just pop out the end with the spring clip then pull away from the notch on the other end.

Thank you guys. Jim - to pop out the skinny end end with the spring, do you need to get at the assembly from behind to squeeze the spring to release it? Or can you do this from the outside of the car only?? Thank you 😊

Just ease out the wheel well cover (relatively soft material) reach in with your fingers and simply push the clip. It pops out with almost zero effort, then carefully disconnect the light connector and remove it from the car. reverse to refit. should not take more than 15 seconds to do.
