Removing rear clearance lights

We have a 2013 36ckts and I would like to install a rear camera that wires into the clearence lights on the back of the trailer. The lights have a thick rubber seal around them and no screws showing. I think they just push in and the rubber seal keeps them in but how do you get them out? I am reluctant to pry with a screwdriver. I have body paint and don't want to scar it around the light. Is there any secret to getting these lights out?

They just pop out like a tractor trailer's sometimes they are a bit hard to get out just spray them with some kind of lubricant

Just like Rest and Relax said....they just pop out. You may need to be "gently" persuasive, depending....

Thanks for the advice. There just isn't much to get a hold of to pull them out.

My camera came with a rubber grommet and instructions to drill a hole for the wires. I drilled between the left and center lights and pulled the existing wires out of the hole with needle nose pliers. There was enough slack in the wires to work with them. No need to pull the clearance light fixtures out.

Pretty sure it is a Voyager. I'll check later, if I can.

Yup. It's a Voyager. About $500.00, I believe.
