this ones kind of tough for an amateur. You need to pop off most of the little black retainers holding the trunk lid liner on. then theres the emergency handle that you use to get out if your locked in the trunk. you need to pull on the far end of the handle and the outer cover will come off. you may need a small screwdriver to remove it. then pull straight down, really hard and the handle will come off. then remove the rest of the liner. the bulbs are 194a bulbs. available pretty much anywhere. reinstall in the reverse order.
If I remember correctly, there is a rubber cover on the back side of the headlight assembly (under the hood). Once that is pulled back, there is a a wire clip that holds the bulb in place. Once the wire clip is dis-engaged, the bulb will slide out of the socket/holder.
I was able to release the headlamp bulb on the 1995 Lexus es300 by removing the rubber cover and releasing a pin that keep the bulb in place. I willhave to purchase a HELO replacement bulb, part number SKU: HEL.1637160.11701
Open the deck lid (trunk) to better access the lights. There will be 2 of them. Recommend replacing both at the same time even if only one has failed. Generally sold in pairs anyway.
Directly above the license plate will be mounted 2 clear light covers. On the right side of each light cover you can see a small plastic rivet. Push in the center 1/4 inch with a small screwdriver then you will be able to pry out and remove the rivet without damaging it. This will save you from buying replacement plastic rivets for re-installation. Remove the light cover with the bulb harness attached.
The bulb harness requires a short turn counter clockwise to remove it from the light cover and the new bulbs snap into the harness. No twisting or screwing. Replace the bulb harness the same way and fasten the light cover back into place using the plastic rivet.
Saves time because both bulbs and light covers are exactly the same style, there is no left or right. Cheers!
remove felt liner from rear of trunk, (liner directly behind rear lights in side trunk) should be 4 plastic Phillips head screws. Loosing screws, then slowly peel liner away. You will see 3 nuts on each side, removing these nuts will loosing the rear light lenses, so you can pull the lense away from the body from the out side to gain access to the license plate bulbs. Re-install in reverse order. While in there I would recommend replacing your brake light and reverse light bulb. Hey your already in there might as well do a little preventive maintance.
