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.

There are a couple of posts through tight plastic retainers that hold the unit in place. It is tricky but a hard pull towards you standing behind your car is needed. The good thing is that it is easy to refit and only the one screw is needed to hold it in place. I haven't pulled that one off but I have pulled the upper one off.
Just to let everyone know, the lower back light unit can not be taken off the same way as the upper one. In order to remove the lower one, you had to take off the inner covering before the wheel, had to remove all the mud guards below the car, and then take off the back bumper too. Therefore a much bigger job than the upper one. I find this puzzling as there is a 'red' fog light bulb in there which may need replacing and this would end up possibly taking a garage a couple of hours of labour to change a bulb? Please someone tell me that I have done is completely wrong and there was some sort of simpler way that I didn't pick up :).
Sorry I made an incorrect assumption. Used to the logic of Toyotas.
