Question about 2007 Ford Focus (3 Door) Hatchback
Yes, u r correct there are only 2 screws. After taking them off the top part remains intact after taking them out, it almost seems like the top part is stuck. I also had that problem and was afraid to pull on it for fear of breaking it. What I did is, I called the dealership where I got the car and spoke to the mechanic. He verified that there are only 2 screws so I tried again. This time I got a larger screw driver and carefully lodged it underneath the top part and slowly eased up and outwards until the top part eventually popped out. Good luck!

There's a screw that goes in from under the weather seal for the hatchback. On the interior of the car, there's a plastic wing-nut thing which you will find by poking your hand through a hole in a plastic panel. Undo these and the taillight assembly will be loose, but not free. The third fastener is a pin that gets pressed into a receptacle in the car. Pry the assembly free by sliding a slot screwdriver between the light assy and the window until you can pry off of the car's metal exterior. Gently turn the screwdriver and that light ought to pop out. Then it's easy street.
