Look in the trunk for the plastic access panels. Remove the side that has the burnt out bulb. Locate the bulb holder that holds the burnt out bulb. Grasp it in one hand and turn it counter clockwise until it becomes loose enough to remove it. Once you have it out, remove the bad bulb and insert the new one. You will have to push in on the bulb and turn it a little counter clockwise to get it lined up to slide out. Assembly is the reverse of what you just did.
i think this model has a line of bulbs in it ,the later ones use LCDs ,if its the later type then its a complete unit.Most likely if its the early type their will be either a clipor grub screws either side of the unit
Replacing a bulb on a Lexus is rather easy but a little involve. You can actually locate the wiring harness by removing the trim panels within your trunk. There are typically two cargo hooks that screw out found on either side of the trunk opening. Also, there are Christmas tree push pins found on the trim panels located on the the trunk sides and the upper part of the trunk. Furthermore, there is a plastic trim panel along the inside front of the trunk that may need to be removed. Bottom line, remove as much as you need to in order to gain access to the tail light wiring harness.
All that is next is to find the appropriate light socket that holds the light that needs to be replaced. Carefully twist the light socket to the left and pull the light out of taillight. Then pull the light out of the socket and place the light back into the appropriate hole and twist to the right about a 1/2 to lock the socket in place.
Then, replace the trim panels, push pins and screws.
In most cases, you will only need to pull the trim panels back far enough to reach you hand in to replace the light.
