I just changed out the center brake light bulbs that display in the rear window. It was quite easy. First, you need to pull down the carpet covering the underside in the trunk. It has 5 or 6 plastic "snap in's." It's helpful to use a flathead scewdriver to pop them out. * Note: Don't try to pull them out of the carpet. Just pull them out of the metal with the carpet. There are 3 or 4 facing you as you look in the trunk, and 2 underneath one locatated on the right and left.

Once the carpet is down, you may need a flashlight to see, look under where the brake light is, and you should see a grey plastic housing about 3/4" wide x 3-4" long with wires in it. Just pull on it and it will come out. Replace the bad bulb(s), and then reverse your steps to put it back together.
