Default parking light replacement

I have 1996 Camry & both parking lights are out. The Chilton manual says to
remove top screws and the side light fixture can be removed in order to get
to bulb.

These are the small lights next to the headlights.

However, the fixture doesn't easily come loose when the top screw is removed
and I am reluctant to force it.

Are there other screws or anything else that needs to be loosened in order
to get to the bulbs??

Thanks for any assistance.

Those things can be a pain. They're held on by one screw and a couple of
anchor clips. Once the screw is removed, that marker light assembly pulls
directly away from the front of the car (like the direction you face when
you drive), and you will hear a loud pop when those clips come loose. If
it is giving you a hard time you can try wrapping a flathead screwdriver
with a rag and give a gentle pry between the body and the light casing.
Just be sure to not pull it out to the side, or you will hear a loud pop
followed by shards of plastic falling to the ground.

Yes,

Do be very patient and very careful. I had to change my right side turn
signal in the middle of a cold snap last winter. The Chilton manual is not
quite accurate in the description. So just go easy and you'll be fine.
