Just did mine, You will need only a flat head screwdriver and needle nose pliers (the pointy type pliers, although the blunt end ones might work, the needle nose will be easier) * Remove the plastic panel around the trunk latch (the metal loop in the back of the trunk). This is held on by 5 metal clips in the back of the plastic, pull evenly from top and bottom and you will be able to tell where they are. Move your hands (or a long screwdriver) behind the panel, gradually easing it out so as not to break the clips or plastic. They are fairly strong so you can use quite a bit of force. You will probably wind up with some attached to the plastic and some still in the metal of your trunk. Remove the ones from the trunk with the needle nose pliers and screwdriver, instert the tips of the needle nose pliers behind the clips and try to pinch the back together while levering out with the screwdriver on the outside. Some will come out easily and others will be a pain in the butt. Slide the clips onto the removed plastic panel so you don't lose them and it's easier to put the panel back on. * Remove the trunk carpeting. This is waaaay easier than the clips and only takes a second. There is a plastic plug/screw about halfway between the top of where the plastic panel was and the top of the light. Pull the carpet back and ease the plastic screw out with the pliers or the screwdriver, you don't need to turn it, just pull it out. * Remove the bulb housing. The larger bottom one is brake light and signal light (make sure your bulb has two filaments (wires) inside it). The plastic that the wiring attaches to just turns (towards you I believe) and comes out, TURN IT BY THE PLASTIC ON THE OUTSIDE, it may be a bit sticky, but again, it can take a fair degree of force before you will break anything. * Replace the bulb. DO NOT TRY TO PULL IT OUT BY THE BULB, IT COULD BREAK AND WILL HURT A LOT. Use the pliers to grip the plastic base of the bulb and pull it out, put the new one in by pushing down on the plastic at each side at the same time, it should sort of click into place, you will know when it's in right. * Test it before you put your trunk back together! You don't need to start the car, simply turning on your hazard lights or turning the ignition back to accessories and turning yousr signal light will let you know. * Put it back together again. Screw the light socket back in, put your plastic screw in, make sure the carpeting goes UNDER the rubber around the outside. Line up your plastic panel and clips with the 5 holes, there are two long plastic pieces that poit out further than the clips for this, when those are aligned your clips should be too. Push the panel in and hit it with your hand where the clips are to make sure they are in good.
