The running lights are inside the light unit, the unit is held in with two screws and simply slides into position. To access the light unit, open the back hatch, and pull the interior away from the top edge of the back wall of the trunk just enough to gain access to the screws along the top edge of the unit. Once removed slide the whole light unit sideways, away from the center line of the car. From there you will see the lights held in the plastic unit with rubber 1/2 turn standard clips.
