Question about 2000 Saturn LW
How do I access the brake light bulb to replace it?
I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.
You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.
Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.
The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.
However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet
down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.
You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.
If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

SOURCE: how to replace brake light bulb?
If similar to 2002 MPV, you detach the whole side light module, then pop out the bulb-socket, then you can replace the bulb. You need a philips screwdriver, medium size. Open the back hatch. Remove the two screws on the inside edge of the light-assembly. Now pull the whole assembly *sideways* not back - it is held by two detent-pins that face out. You can swing it out a bit and then carefully lever it at top or bottom edge. Lower the assembly face-down, you can see three bulb-sockets. They can be turned a part-turn, I think counter-clockwise, then they pop out. Replace bulb(s), re-insert socket, push assembly back onto pins, replace screws. Just did this for brake/tail light 10 minutes ago.

This is for Nissan Sentra Models 2007-2010.
1. Open the trunk and remove trunk liner by first removing popcap black button which fastens the liner. Then pull away liner from metal.
2. Notice two white protective plastic spikes covering 2 screw threads with 2 small bolts. Remove white protective spikes manually or by prying them off of their screws and proceed to remove bolts.
4. Pry away entire brake lamp housing from the exterior of the car in swinging door motion towards the sidepanels of the car. Dont pull too hard or let it hang as this may damage wiring - support lamp housing in place.
5. Replace lamp by manually pulling it's housing out of the lamp and then pulling the bulb itself out of socket and inserting new one.
