Do you have a 2 door or 4 door Civic? If it's a 2 door, according to the service manual picture it looks like there are only 4 bolts holding the assembly to the body. If it's a 4 door, I'm positive that both housings (the one on the trunklid and the one on the body) are held on by four bolts each.

The housings do seal very tight, so you may need to pull on them pretty firmly to get them to break loose.

You may need to remove the rear bumper to access the bolts. I have not had the rear lens out of a civic but I know on the accords you need to remove the bumper.
