Push the new bulbs into the blade sockets. Put the assembly back in place and replace the 3 screws.

Open the trunk....inside the trunk, on the back side are plastic covers that you can remove...there you will find your bulbs....find the brake light bulbs and remove them and replace them with new bulbs, then replace the covers.
