I changed the bulb on my 99 Escort in following manner: I

Open trunk, Remove 2 screws that hold the taillight casing. From inside the trunk, remove(pull aside) the carpeting/lining. You may need to remove a plastic pin. The following procedure takes a lot of effort and time :

Use a plier or some device to squeeze the platic holders that are still holding the tailight casing into the vehicle body. Squeeze/push them from inside the trunk towards outside of car. This will loosen the whole tail light/backup light/side light casing out of the vehicle.

Now you can see individual bulb holders. Turn the right type of holder so it is detached from the casing and remove carefully. Remove bulb carefully by pulling out of socket, push and insert new bulb.

  • After you remove the two screws you can give the taillight a good slap with the palm of your hand outwards to the side of the car and that usually pops the plastic clips right out.
