Most rear lamps can be accessed from inside the trunk. Open trunk and look for access past the carpet.

By pulling back the carpet or removing the large plastic carpet retaining nuts, you can see the back of the light assembly.

Fig. 8: Once the carpet is pulled down, you can see the retaining wingnuts which must be removed to access the rear bulbs

If you can reach the bulb from inside the trunk, you don't need to remove the lens assembly to replace the bulbs. But, if you can't reach the bulb and connector assembly, you may need to remove the lens assembly.

If necessary, remove the tail light panel screws and the lens assembly.

Fig. 9: Carefully pull the rear light assembly away from the vehicle for access to the bulbs

You can now simply turn the bulb connector assembly counterclockwise and remove it from the lens housing.

Fig. 12: Carefully press the bulb in and twist it approximately 1/8 turn counterclockwise to remove it from the socket

To remove the bulb, turn the twist lock socket (at the rear of the housing) counterclockwise 1/4 turn, then remove the socket with the bulb; replace the bulb if defective.
