I have a 1999 es300 and had the same problem. It has been a while since I replaced the bulb, but because no one has answered your question I thought I would try to recall how I did it. You can get to the back of the light assembly holding the bulb you want to replace two ways - from below or above. I read that if you try from below it is a long reach to get to the assembly and difficult to undo the attachment, so I choose to tackle it from the top. To get to the screw that holds the light assembly I read that you have to totally remove the black plastic shield that goes over the radiator from one fender to the other and it is held in place by several plastic fasteners. If you are careful you only need to remove a few fasteners holding the shield nearest to the light assembly with the burnt out bulb. Use a small screwdriver to pry out each fastener (2 or 3 should be enough) you want to remove. The fasteners holding the shield may not be like mine, but if you break them you can get replacements at the car parts place when you buy your new bulb. Carefully, lift up the end of the shield and be sure you don't accidentally break it. Find the screw that releases the light assembly (it is just one screw and easy to see). The light assembly can be easily pushed out and you can remove and replace the faulty bulb. Place the light assembly back in place and the screw holding it. Replace the fasteners you popped out back into the shield holes. If I did not forget to tell you something important that should do it. Good luck.. BTW, your 1996 es300 may be totally different from my '99 so be cautious.

Along the rear of the inside of the trunk there are four small bolts which need to be removed. Once removed, you will be able to push out the outer plastic cover holdind the light bulbs and wiring. From there, you can easily remove and replace the bulbs.

incorrect resistance of light bulbs installed. causes electrical feed back. replace all bulbs with factory replacement Also check that the tail light ground is ok. If the tail light bulbs aren;t grounded, it causes a backfeed of power to the dash lights and causes them to turn on.

To replace the parking light bulbs, remove the screw on top of the headlight and pop out the clearance light. The parking light bulb will be accessible after this removal.
