I believe you can get to the screws of the tail-lights (lamps) by opening the trunk and looking behind the plastic wall in the vicinity of the tail-lamp (light) area. I just looked at mine and did not see any screws on the outside of my 95 Tracer, so when I popped the trunk, there were screws behind the plastic vinyl wall at the taillamp area. Don't know which screws exactly lead to the taillamp, but you might can take out the taillamp bulbs for a better look.

Yeah the nuts are behind the plastic wall I think they are 10mm nuts.

How do you replace tail lights in 2001 Honda Civic?

In order to replace your tail lights you need to first remove your rear bumper, there is a screw on both sides, and a 1/4 in bolt on both sides, you then need to open the trunk and remove the bolts on the inner left and right side ( you may have to remove the plastic black oval covers), remove the two clips on the bottom of the bumper pull the bumper out and away from the vehicle. at this point you need to remove the snap bolts holding the trunk liner. you then unloosen the three nuts on each tail light and the screw on the bottom of each tail light, under each tail light there is a black bracket which will need to be loosened also, you then disconnect your lights and slowly remove the tail lights out. installation is the reverse, be sure to tighten the black bracket in place, good luck.
