Is it the piece where the license plate lights and trunk open switch are? You just have to unplug the wires, I believe there is a connector somewhere. You might need to remove the trunk lid liner for access though.

You need to pull the lid out enough to be able to reach and unplug the connector. It seems to have a little bit of tension if I remember correctly.

Just be sure to SECURE THE PLUG after it's disconnected so that it doesn't retract back into the hole or else you ae gonna have a fun time fishing it out.
