I just completed this task for replacing one of the left rear brake light bulbs. Open the storage / CD changer (if so equiped) compartment in the left rear of the trunk. There is a 5.5-6 inch flap located in upper part of the left side of the door opening that you bend out toward you to expose the tail-light / brake light assembly. I had to use a knife to cut two small remaining attachment points of this flap - one on top and one on the bottom. When you bend the flap back you can see the rear of the assembly and you will notice 4 white tabs clipped into red snap-in points. Simple press the white tabs towards the center of the assembly to release them from the snap-in points and then you can wiggle/jiggle the bulb panel out and replace the bad bulb(s). To replace, wiggle/jiggle the bulb panel back into place and press the tabs into the snap-in points until they click into place. Fold the access flap back into place and close the storage / CD changer (if so equiped) compartment door.

There are no bulbs, it is a panel of mini-lights. You access this from the trunk area.

pull back carpet around the taillight. It should be three plastic caps that unscrew and pull the light out, disconnect the bulbs. Replace with a new tail light.

You have to take out the light. Each light has these two plastic releases on them that will disconnect them from the lighting header panel. After that you can twist and release the bulb you wish to replace.

You must first remove the Trunk liner back far enough to get to the light cavity. There are two bulbs that make up the center third brake light. Just twist the light out of the lock position and replace the bulbs with appropiate replacements and then screw back in.

The light is held by clips. You can remove the housing by using your fingers or a small screw driver. Once you have the housing out, you should be able to easily replace the light bulbs. The bulbs come in pairs and cost about 5 bucks.
