If it's just that the bulbs that have burnt out you'll need to position the exterior mirror glass inward toward the vehicle.(Note: Use caution to not trap the side lamp assembly wiring
during installation, or damage to the wiring may occur.) Using a flat blade
screwdriver or something similar, push the mirror side lamp assembly forward while
releasing the retaining clip. Separate the bulb holders from the mirror side lamp assembly and remove the
side lamp. Replace the bulbs and reassemble. I hope this helps you out.
open the hatch and there should be a couple of screws where the lens is. Unscrew them and the lens should just pop off. There are 3 bulbs I believe find which one it is and just grab the lamp base and turn it a quarter turn and the bulb should pull out with the base. Just pull the bulb out and replace.

If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!
