Tail lights

So is there any advice or tricks on how to change the lenses on a 93-96 Caprice tail light assembly?
I see the plastic tabs which look like they should release the lens from the body, but it doesn’t budge. Is it glued? I’m scared I’m going to break it trying to pry it apart.
Help!

Some set housing in a low heat oven to soften sealant. I used a laundry tub filled with hot water,and was successful. Seemed safer to me as well...
