Question about 1997 Geo Prizm
Step #1 Open Trunk, on inside of the light housing close to the trunk latch area are 2 bolts, Remove them, on mine they were 10mm
Step#2 Inside the trunk are 2 Black clips that hold the carpet down They have flat heads that look like screws but they are actually clips that pop out
Step#3 Peal back the carpet in the trunk and look in the corner of the rear of the light assembly by the fender You will see a nut and the end of a bolt On mine these were gold colored, Remove the nut
Step#4 On the outside of the vehicle again take a screwdriver or such and gently pry the outside edge of the assembly to dislodge the pin holding it in place You cant see it but you will feel when it gives and the whole light assembly will come out toward the rear of the car
Step#5 The brake lights are the bulbs to the inside of the assembly, gently twist the socket counter clockwise and remove it from the housing, Then push down on the bulb and twist it to remove it from the socket, Replace with the new bulb and reassemble everything and You are home free!
Hope this helps, Took me a long time to figure this one out without an owners manual!
Take Care and good luck

To start open the trunk. behind the carpet on either side of the trunk is the tail light assembly. simply turn the bulb holding fixture counter clockwise until it stops. then pull gently to remove the bulb holder from the tail light assembly. to remove the bulb itself simply pull the bulb straight out. the proper bulb number should be marked on the bulb typically a 3057 or a 3157.hope this helps
