Open the hatch on your '88 corvette all the way. Underneth the roof brake light, inside the hatch there a couple of screws that need to be undone. Once you take these out, the entire compartment for the roof brake light will come away from the body/hatch. Then there are a couple of more screws at the bottom of the compartment that have to come out, by taking them out you will now gain access to the bul area. If my memory is correct, there is actually 3 or 4 small, but expensive bulbs inside there, anyone of which could be bad. I hope this helped.

Not sure on this particuliar vehicle but on most newer vehicles the tail light bulbs can be accessed by opening the rear door or trunk and removing a panel that allows access to the tail lights and the bulbs.
