Depends on the year of the car. But basically there will likely be some plastic paneling in the trunk that can be removed by releasing the tabs on it. (don't lose them!) Pull back the platic paneling, and find the bulb you need to replace. The bulb closest to the outside of the car is usually the running/signal bulb. And the one closer to the inside of the car is the brake light. To remove the socket, twist it and pull out. If it doesn't twist easily, try the other direction. Also, there is likely a spring in the socket that prevents the bulb from popping out. You need to release it to get the bulbs out. Best of luck.

Do incandescent light bulbs have more mercury in them than fluorescent?

I would say no. My reasoning is that if incandescent bulbs have as much or more mercury than fluorescent bulbs, the fluorescent industry would be debunking all the reports of a mercury problem.Incandescent lights do not need or use mercury to operate, so there is none in them.Fluorescent lights cannot be made at all without mercury, as it is the glow of mercury ions that produces the UV light inside the fluorescent bulb to excite the phosphor coating to make visible light.

Why do the instrument panel and rear tail lights refuse to go on when the dial is rotated on a 1994 Mercury Sable?

Burnt fuse...the tail lights and dash lights run together. Replace the fuse and if it burns again, change tail light bulbs first (some may be bad even though they work) and then look for bad wiring if the bulbs haven't fixed it.
