Lamp sockets are located inside trunk. There will be a little door/cover along the outerwall of trunk lining on either side. Pop the little door/cover off & you will see 3 sockets inside. Twist the socket to unlock it, change bulb, then replace socket and twist it to lock it into position.

To replace the taillight bulbs open rear door, remove the two Phillips screws, pull the whole lamp assembly to the rear, unplug the wiring from the lamp assembly. Now remove the four small Phillips screws on the back. The socket will just pull off and you can get to the bulbs. GM had a recall on the socket assembly because of tail lamps not working. Before reassembling the unit you can just plug the socket in to check if all lmps are working, If not and the lamps appear good bend outward the small wire loops on the lamp to make a better connection
