Mine's a 2001, but I think 2002 is the same.
I found this site/question when searching for the answer today.
Now that I had to muddle through it on my own I thought it only fair that I spread the knowledge.
My 2001 has two license plate lights, one on either side of the plate mounting area.
There is a slot at the top of each light bezel that at first appeared to me to be where you might insert a screwdriver or hooked tool to pry/pull out the bezel.
This proved NOT to be the case.
If you forge ahead heavyhandedly in this direction you will risk breaking the lens.
If you look very carefully at the top of the slot you will find a tab that is VERY thin and thus hard to spot at first glance.
take a thin flat screwdriver and insert it gently ABOVE the tab.
Press down gently but firmly, and coax, or lightly pry the lens out.
Once you have it out, rotate the gray plastic piece directly behind the reflector portion of the lens about a 1/8 turn in a counter clockwise direction.
At this point you can access and change the push-in type "OS 12V W5W E1 2GL w0T" bulb.
To reassemble just reverse the directions.
When snugging the assembly back into the license plate area, first position the bottom and then tip the top into position until you feel/hear it click.
Celebrate your victory over your machine!

open rear hatch and look strait down on inside boot well. the plastic trim has access holes that pop out on either side just behind the lights. pop out the access cover on the side with burnt bulb, then reach inside that hole and you will fins a large plastic "wingnut", unscrew it<careful not to drop it or you'll have to take the whole boot apart to retrieve it> after removing wingnut carefully pop out lens from outside , replace bulb and reinstall after testing

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

yes, you need a special tool to screw the brake piston back into the caliper housing. this is do to your disc brake set up. tool is available from harbor freight at around 40 dollars.

There are round access panels more or less behind each tail light in
the trunk. There is a small slot at the edge that you can insert a wide
blade screwdriver to pop the panel out. then look for the star shaped knob
Now it will be possible to remove the entire tail light by using a thin flat blade. A putty knife, especially a plastic one would be good. Being careful not to damage the paint, slip the blade under the lower part of the tail light lens and pry the tail light assembly out.
Once the assembly is out, both the turn signal and stop/rear lamp sockets are exposed. The connector can be removed by pushing in a little tab on the side and pulling the connector straight out. It may not be absolutely necessary to remove the connector if the wiring is long enough, but when the connector is removed, it is easier to remove the lamp socket.
hope i helped
