Replace the back fog/indicator light unit for a KONA 2021

Trying to figure out how to replace the lower back light unit for a KONA 2021. I can only see one screw (photo) which can be removed using a screw driver supplied by Hyundai. I am not sure if after removing this one screw I can pull the unit off or if there are any screws that are holding the unit into the bumper that have to be undone from the back of the unit. It seems to be stuck in firmly but don't want to force it if something is holding it in. Images added.

You are correct. The lower light assembly cannot be easily removed but, with a few contortions you can get at the reversing light bulb and the rear fog light from under the car, negating the need to remove the assembly. A while ago I posted my experiences adding additional reversing lights to my 2018 Kona. The post included a couple of pics showing the rear of the fittings taken from underneath the car. What you need is a trained octopus to get one of its very dexterous tentacles up to the back of the light assembly and unscrew to bulb fitting. If you don't have a trained octopus readily available give it a go yourself. It ain't easy but it's doable and a darn side easier than removing the inner guard etc.
