You cannot change the bulb from the inside the trunk. First unclip the electric cord leading to the rubber housing on the inside on the trunk. Next, use a flat head screwdriver to pry off the rubber housing. This needs to be done so that you can separate the outside light fixture from the car body. You will see the Three 7/16 inch bolts that connect the outside light cover to the car body from the inside. Take off the three bolts and carefully remove the entire light fixture from the body of the car. You will see two turn-type connections housing the actual light bulbs. Turn these and pull out light fixture. The brake light is the inside one. The turn signal has an additional clip on it that must be unclipped first before turning the housing. The bulbs just pop out with simple force. Replace, reconnect housings, fixtures, and your ready to roll. Don't know why Ford made this procedure so hard.
