Open the hatch, there are 2 screws holding the entire light assembly on each side of the vehicle. Take the screws out and lift the assembly away from the car outwards, there is a post on the front end holding it onto the side of the car. Then just twist the brake light socket to the left and pull it out to get to the bulb.
