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
