I believe there is also a Phillips Head screw on the top of the housing right above the top of the red lense.

Another fact is that the 56 Packard Clipper and 57 Packard Clipper have different tail lights the casting and part number are different the 57 have three phillips head screws from out side and three studs inside the rear fender. The 56 ones have holes cast into bottom for the rubber which is attached to bottom of housing on 56 Clippers
