At one point the light was integral to the spoiler (not sure on years/VINs). On my 2012 4dr w/Nav there are two clips that can be undone without the need to mess with removing the spoiler. These brake lights are notorious for developing condensation over time, I replaced mine about 10K miles ago. See the video for a pretty good DIY on removing the brake light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3xuBYPFa-Y

Oh jeez. If its anything like my MKV GTI was... I had to get a new spoiler painted and installed with the light...

I'm not too sure if its the same on the MK6 though.

Edit: looks like that youtube video that RisingBluR posted would work for the R!
