I am including a couple of illustrations to better help with this replacement. You will first need toe open the tail gate. then next to the tail light on the inside edge where the tail gate meets the seal you will see to plastic screw covers ( if still there) or two screws. You will need to remove these two screws , once removed the tail light will come out by lightly pulling outwards. Then simply depress the thumb clip on the bulb holder and remove.
Open the tail gate, and you will see on the side of the tail light housing two screws that you will need to unscrew in order to take the housing out. If it is the tail light ,that is on the actual gate, open the tail gate and remove the plastic bed liner there are few of screws that need to be removed. Hope this helps you fix it.

Hello riggs791. My name is Roger and I will help you. Raise the lift gate. In the rain drip rail you will find two screws through the lens to the body. Remove the two screws. Carefully pull on the lens. What you are removing to get to the tail lamp bulb is the entire lamp. The front outside edge of the lens has two lock in clips. Once you have the lamp loose turn it over and unlock the socket and replace the light. Reverse to reinstall the lamp.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. This way we know the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
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.
