How do you change 147 rear light bulbs?

I'm trying to replace the rear light/stop and indicator bulbs but am struggling to remove the light-grey back section that holds the bulbs.

Is there a knack to this? It will also present a challenge to refit with the new bulbs in - again is there a knack required?

The fog light bulb replacement is I guess fairly simple being housed in the tailgate.

Thanks guys.

Alfa 147 1.9jtd

The whole light unit is held on by a couple of small nuts accessible from the boot, undo those and the light unit can be removed and unclipped from the wiring.
Then the bulb holder is attached to the lens with 1 philips screw iirc and it just lifts off to give access to the bulbs.
Not overly complicated/difficult (I have the facelifted 147, but I imagine that is the same/similar on both versions)
