I replaced my lights last week. After the 2 screws are removed, the unit is held in place with 2 rubber posts (this may not be the right term). Pull the whole unit away from the van by forcing it out or away from the back/cargo door towards the front sliding doors, they should pop-out. The bulbs housing is a simple twist and pullout.
After lifting the rear hatch there are two phillip screws that secures the light. Take those off and gently lift the light cover out of it's housing ( becareful not to break the clips ) by moving it side to sid ewhile pulling.

Re: HOW TO CHANGE REAR BRAKE LIGHTS 1999 QUEST?
I don't know this van but many tail light assembly's have a couple of screws you remove then a couple of snap clips. So after you remove the screws you gently pry the assembly off with a slim pry tool.

Most 3rd brake light covers are held on with 2 plastic screws located on the sides, or the cover is just a push fit, easily pried off with a thin blade such as a putty knife screw drivers sceatch it up badly
1) Unplug the Brake Light Bulbs and with a Voltmeter, check for voltage on both sides. 2) If you have voltage: change the bulbs and recheck operation. 3) If you do NOT have voltage: go under the dash on the drivers' side. Look up onto the arm of the Brake Pedal. There should be a switch behind the arm, On the switch should be a plunger. With a partner at the rear of the vehicle: Depress the plunger in, and have your partner check for Brake Lights. 4) If you now have Brake Lights: the plunger and/or switch can be adjusted. The Brake Arm when depressed, pushes-in the plunger activating the Brake Lights. Some Plungers can be unscrewed (counterclockwise) to shorten the gap to the Brake Arm, 5) If you still have NO Brake Lights: Twist the Switch/Plunger 1/4 turn, removing it off the support bracket. Unplug this Switch and again check for voltage. 6) If you have voltage: the Switch is bad and needs to be replaced. 7) If you still have NO voltage: Check the fuses.

there is a short in the system more than likely in the headlight switch itself causing the problem. not a hard fix just remove the covers from around the column and unbolt the headlight switch from the column and bolt in the new one and see if this fixes your problem also check and make sure you dont have a broken ground at the rear of the vehicle for the rear lights, should be bolted to the frame black wire, generally on driver side.
