Take the lens off and replace the bulb.

I love the previous answer - "Take the lens lens and replace the bulb". Very funny! How the hell do you get the lens off, is the question. When you look inside the trunk, all you see is sheet metal - no way to get at the lens. But to the "outboard" side - toward the side of the car, inside the trunk - you'll see a single nut, 10 mm diameter, on a threaded stud. Actually, there are several nuts; the one you're looking for is at the same plane as the lens. Undo this. The nut may come off, or it may back the entire stud out with the nut on the stud; no matter, because the stud is screwed into the plastic lens housing. Once this is out, you should be able to pull the lens housing out, by pivoting the "outboard" side towards you and towards the centre of the car. It is also hooked on the inboard side, but is not screwed. In my car a previous repairer had used some kind of sealant/gasket materal/whatever to more-or-less glue the lens onto the body so it was a lot of work to pry it off without breaking the lens housing. Once the lens is off THEN it's easy to replace the bulbs! They're held in by plastic bulb holders; twist them out, then twist-and-pull the bulbs out. .
