Remove the tail lamp housing to body screws. Carefully slide the tail lamp housing rearward away from vehicle. Disconnect the tail lamp housing electrical connector. Remove the tail lamp housing from the vehicle.
Remove the plastic screen surrounding the fog light (held on by 3 Torx screws). Elevate the front of the car and remove the plastic tray under the front bumper(held on by 5-6 eight mm headed sheet metal screws). Unplug the wire to the lamp and remove the four screws holding the fog lamp on.(4 Torx screws). You can't get a screwdriver into this tight space, so you'll need a torx bit and a 1/4" drive ratchet to turn it. It is a tight work area and you'll have to take your time and just "worry" those screws out with the Torx bit.. Remove the lamp unit and replace it with the new one. reinstall four screws. Plug wire into the new lamp. Then reinstall the plastic splash tray under the bumper and the wire grill around the light. Done!
You will need a flat blade screwdriver and a T20 torx Open the tailgate, on the inside of the lamp cluster there are 2 plastic domed heads that look like blanking plugs, with a flat bladed screwdriver pry them out, then grasp the lamp unit and pull it backwards, the 2 balls need to pop out of the plastic sockets and you will have the unit in your hand, on the back of the lamp the bulbholder is held in with 2 T20 torx screws, undo these and pry the holder out of the lamp, get someone to operate the lights and indicators to work out the faulty bulb, re-assemble in reverse order, pat the lamp into the panel with your hand.
I just changed both bulbs in my 1998 Grand Cherokee. These solutions made it possible, but i will offer some clarification and photos. First of all, all 4 screws are torx T20 as emoesmoe mentions, none are phillips. there are two bulbs that blink: the larger amber bulb is the turn signal light--dealer was cheaper than autozone and only had to purchase one bulb; the other bulb is called a side marker and it also blinks with a turn but stays on with the headlights. see photos that go along with the first two solutions. the first photo shows step one the first screw to take out. second and third photo are step two removing the second screw. the last photo shows the exposed screws to the turn signal housing after the uper light houseing has been removed:
