Probably the same way you remove the assembly on my 1993 Prizm. First, curse GM for changing the way the brake lights fit from Toyota's perfectly good Corollas <g>

Next, open the trunk and remove whichever side trunk trim panel clip retainers. These retainers will most like have to be replaced -- any auto store should have them. Peel back the panel and remove the tail light housing retaining nut. Then, push the assembly from front to back of the trunk (the assembly is removed from outside the trunk - a complete reversal of the way the older Corollas used to work.

Not sure what I'm talking about? Get a copy of Haynes (Corolla/Prizm 1993 thru 2003) and look at the pictures on page 12-14 and 12-15. .
