You have to remove the plastic access panel located in the cargo area first...then, remove the three 8mm hex head nuts from the studs. Careful as these can seize over time and you end up twisting out the stud....use some penetrating fluid on them first. They are a little hard to see but if you get in with a flashlight you can see/feel around for them. One of them is accessible through the access hole on the inside edge of the access panel, through the body itself. The other two are on the top and bottom of the housing. If they come out without twisting off, put some anti-seize on them. You CAN remove the bulbs themselves without taking out the light assembly, with a half turn counterclockwise, but they can be a pain to twist out if your fender wells are rusted, as they get clogged with mud/road grime.
