Electrical problem
1992 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I am trying to replace the third brake light bulb not no luck, simply can't open the cover. Tried to use hooks from both sides at the same time, tried to lift it and tried to pull it back. None of these methods worked. Any help is appreciated!

Gently remove the lens with a suitable prying tool or remove the stop light cover screws and extract the cover.
Some models are equipped with clips to retain the cover. If this is the case, make sure new ones are obtained prior to removal, they often break during removal.
If equipped with a metal cover, remove to access the bulb.
Push in and rotate the bulb and remove on some models or just pull the bulb straight out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

So basically you are saying to remove the cover by prying it up. I did try that and felt something was holding the cover, like clip. I pry and lift the back of the cover about 1/2 inch high but did not see any screw though. Thanks again for replying my message.
