I found this while looking for the same answer for my '99 Frontier. I looked and sure enough there are two bolts under my bedliner - hopefully I'll have taillights tonight. =) Good luck.

If you have a bedliner, the two #1 Phillips screws are behind it. If you have a bed extender, the bolts that hold in the tails are the same for the brackets for the bed extender.

This also applies to newer Frontiers as well. Mine is a 2004. The bedliner concealed the 2 screws.

After removing the 2 screws the tail light assembly can be pulled slightly to the rear. There are 2 plastic plugs that are holding it in at this point.

Grasp the assembly at the top and bottom and pull firmly to the rear.

I suspect that as the vehicle gets older this plastic plug system will break. The female parts can be replaced as they screwed into the body.

To reassemble a sharp rap with the heel of the hand will reseat the plugs.
