Doing body work and stripping the car down. How do you get the triangular reflectors from above the taillights off? I don't see a nut on the back of the threaded stud that sticks thru and into the body.

gently pry them away from body, should have a clip into the body - can also try squeezing the clip inside the cavity and pushing it out - both have worked for me

ISTR that clip is a spire nut or fix nut and looks something like this?



Sometimes you can get a small drift on the end of the pin and gently tap; on the other hand, those fix nuts can be quite tenacious!
