1. Open the rear hatch, and look down towards the bumper, in the direction of the tail light bulb needing replacement.
2. You should see the dark colored plastic trim piece, which is held in place by two small plastic body style philips head screws.
3. These wil only 'loosen' a little bit, you will need to slip a fingernail or some other slim item, underneath the heads of each of the screws, and pull back on them firmly by grasping the body of the screw, not the head (which is flimsy, and can crush if squeezed).
3. remove the plastic trim piece - it can be achieved by lifting out and towards you - set aside.
4. Using a 10mm socket or wrench, unscrew the upper and lower bolts holding the taillight assembly in place.
5. the taillight assembly is now loose - it can pulled rearwards, and will slide off of the small guide slots holding it in place.
6. The bulb is a twist lock style, underneath the tan cap- twist the cap counter-clockwise, and it will pop out. The bulb is a number 7440, for the running light/ brake light, and a 7443 for the turn signal. a 3757 will not fit through the cut out hole in the taillight assembly.
7. Re-assemble in reverse, making sure to check the function of the bulb PRIOR to re-assembly.

As a warning, this is a little difficult and requires some patience. I just had to do with to my 2000 accord, and I'm betting the process is very similar for your '98 model. Before starting, you're going to want to get a Phillips head screw driver and a pair of pointy needle-nose pliers. The first thing you'll want to pop off it the driver's side fuse box cover. Under that you should see two screws towards the bottom that hold on the plastic trim that covers the underside of the steering column. This was held along the top with a few pins that should pop lose with a little effort (not too much force though!). There is one screw holding this piece in on the other side (holding it into the center console) but you wouldn’t need to remove this, you just need to get behind this piece of trim. Behind it, you should see two screws holding in the piece of trim that covers the side of the shifter. Take those out and it'll give you the little bit of wiggle room you're going to need. Lastly, pop off the black trim around the shifter. All you'll need to do is put something flat under it and gently pull up, working your way around it. This should pull off relatively easily. You should see the two wires leading to the bulb that will be located right in the middle on the driver's side. What you'll need to do is wiggle you're hand up under the side of the plastic side trim and grab the bulb. It will take a quarter turn to loosen it. Put the new bulb you have in the socket, wiggle it back in its proper place (don't forget to give it a quarter turn again to lock it in) and you should be set. Make sure you test the bulb before putting everything back together! I’m sure something doesn’t make complete sense in here, so if you need any clarification on anything in here, let me know!

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta
