Here's how to access the high mount stop light on a 1996 Toyota Camry sedan. I don't know whether it's similar to the 1997. First of all, I will define "forward" to mean the direction that the car moves when you're driving forward. You won't need any tools, just a new 921 bulb and your hands. All work will be done from the back seat. The flexible plastic cover is held in place by two hooks, each of which keeps the cover from moving up or forward. The hooks are molded onto the forward part of the cover, but they are on the inside so one can't see them until the cover is removed. (Unfortunately, this makes it really difficult to "figure out" how to remove the cover!) Vertically, the hooks are centered on the forward part of the cover, and horizontally each is located 1/3 in from the edges of the forward part of the cover. Put your thumbs on the forward part of the cover and push hard; you will need to deform the plastic away from you about 1/4 inch in order to release the hooks. You will not hear or feel the hooks release. While still pushing, start moving the cover up. Then slide the cover along the glass of the rear windshield to remove it. The reflector unlocks by gently lifting up on the two plastic tabs on top while pulling the top of the reflector towards you. Lift the reflector out. Remove the bulb by sliding it straight up. Hope this solves it for you! Riick
