If it is the light in the rear window, there are two plastic caps on either side on the base of the light. Pop off the cap and remove the screws inside. That should allow you to get to the bulb. I went to autozone for the bulb w/o removing it and they gave me the wrong one. If you have the bulb removed, you're better off, if not, the people at advanced got me the correct one without any issues. If it's the brake lights on the back of the trunk, you access those from inside the trunk. On either side, there are thumbscrews (sometimes under the fabric lining flaps). Once you remove the bulb carrier, you'll know which one is out. It usually lines up with the red cover but if you can borrow someone's time, have them look in your trunk at the bulbs as you test your parking lights to see which one lights and which one doesn't. Hope this helps.

The driver side running lights don't work on my 2007 hyundai elantra. brake light, blinkers and headlights all work and the bulbs are good because they flash when i lock car with the fab. but they don't...


brake lights and blinkers use the sale filament in the bulb
the running light is the other (in a dual filament bulb)
you may have a poor connection or a break inside the bulb base.
test with a known good bulb.
the next place to look is the connector on the light switch and the joint where the running lights split off.

REAR BRAKE LIGHT


open your trunk and remove the carpet from behind the brake lights, you should be able to access the brake light from there. If not just remove those screws/bolts and the brake light assembly will pop right out.
