I looked at the back up light and couldn't figure out an easy way to access the back up light.

Do you have to remove the clear light cover to get access?
I'm used to getting access from inside the trunk, but this impreza has a large one piece hard plastic behind the backup light. It doesn't seem right to be removing the whole hard plastic to get access to the light bulbs.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Also what's the easiest way to remove the plastic cover on the inside of the hatch? I assume this will be necessary to mount the camera to the hatch, and work from behind the hatch?
1. Where ever you feel most comfortable gaining access, i did it at the light and snaked the wires up the C pillar to the hatch.

2. First, pull off the plastic by the 3rd brake light, then the 2 side pieces, under those are 2 small phillips screw plugs, take those out THEN the hatch panel.

Just tug it with gentle pressure
