I just changed mine. You have to go in thru the back and replace the entire bulb housing. Check out a junkyard, Cavaliers ae everywhere and the body style never changed after '96. There are three screws behind the trunk carpetting.

move the trunk liner out of the way. You'll see the black bulb holder turn the holder counterclockwise about 1/4 turn. it will pull out of the light housing. grasp the bulb , pull it out and replace it with a new 3157. reverse the process to clean up

To replace your brake light, you need to unscrew the brake cover from the inside of the trunk. Then you will be able to pull the old bulb out and replace it.

From inside the trunk you will find either access to the bulb or access to the bolts to remove the assembly. Access to the light is gained underneath it, through the trunk.

You can access the brake light bald through the trunk compartment. Remove the trunk liner from the tail light assembly. Push the brake light connector in and turn at the same time. The brake lightbulb will come out. Reverse the process to install the new brake light
